How Much Swelling Should be Expected After an Alar Base Reduction?
I recently had an alar base reduction done. My nose looks a bit better but my main concern is that the alar subcutaneous fat on both sides are larger than before (which is the opposite of what I was looking for... i wanted to have less meaty alae). I was wondering if this is because of the lidocaine+epinephrine solution that was injected in that area that is making the alae more "meaty"? My nose overall looks extra puffy on the sides. I still have to get my stitches removed (in 5 more days).
