Uneven swelling the cause of nose asymmetry?
By Sara04 on 26 Jan 2010
Since my revision rhinoplasty five months ago, the two sides of my nose have been very different. On one side, the upper part was huge after the cast came off and remains swollen-looking. The bottom looks OK. On the other side, the upper part is slim, but the bottom part of my nose looks wide and bulky, and you can see the outline of the graft.
Since both sides were treated the same in terms of grafts on upper and lower nose, what accounts for this difference? Could it be uneven swelling?
