- Asked by Marieca

Im 3 months postop, I had a wide, bulbous nose prior to surgery. The large ball at the end of the nose is gone but the nose still seems too wide. My fp surgeon says the tip is still very swollen, he was going to injection with cortisone after 3 months, but decided to wait another 2 mo. I am very concerned about how large the nose still looks. My husband is the only one who knows I had surgery, not even my kids can tell I had something done. How long should I wait to see some definition?
Still wide and large after rhinoplasty
It takes longer than three months, and it usually pays to wait a full twelve months for all stiffness and swelling to resolve after rhinoplasty. If you pinch the tip you can still feel the stiffness. Steriods are tempting, but most of us like to avoid them so give yourself more time.
