hi, I had both Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty 16 days ago and my nose is still very swollen and it looks really big specially from the tip and when I touch my nose from swollen area I feel hard skin looks like fossilized skin so

Is this all normal? if so how long its gonna take (because it looks not good at all)? Regards

Hi Khalid,
I realize that you had concerns regarding the swelling of your nose but now that it's been over a year I am wondering if the swelling has gone down considerably and if you are now pleased with the results. Would love to see a pic of your nose now.

Hi Dr. Bellin I am really afraid the surgery has not been performed in a proper way!! Im feeling too much depressed, Im too much enclosed to myself because of this swelling

Your swelling does seem a bit excessive; but if the surgery was done properly, you should expect a reduction in the tip over the next few weeks and months.

You are only about two weeks out from your surgery. With nose surgery it is very normal to still have swelling and numbness at this point. You can expect 1 more week or so of the initial swelling going away, 2-3 months of more advanced healing going on, and up to a year to feel like you never had surgery. Keep the faith! It will all get better in time. I hope this info helps!
