Bump After Rhinoplasty 7 Weeks in
I had rhinoplasty 7 weeks ago but I see a bump forming on the left side of my nose that makes it uneven. Also the bridge of my nose seems to be getting wider. My doctor told me that it was swelling from the surgery and it would take a full year to heal. He told me to press on the sides of the bridge of my nose to prevent it from getting wider for thirty seconds three times a day. However, as I am following the instructions, the bump seems to be swelling more. Is there anything I'm doing wrong?
