It's very normal for the nose to swell when the cast is removed. It could take several months for the initial swelling to subside, and up to a year before you will see the final results of your rhinoplasty. It's only been 7 days since your surgery, so please be patient, and don't hesitate to contact your plastic surgeon if you do not see the swelling diminish within the next 1 to 2 months. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!
Dear ss10, It is normal for the nose to swell after removing the splint. The majority of this swelling should dissipate in three months with the final results in a full year. You should be fine and picture ready for wedding day. Congratulations on your nuptials. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
It is quite common for the nose to swell after the splint comes off. It will take several months for the swelling to subside. Best of luck.
The splint is there to control the swelling after rhinoplasty and help control the nasal shape. It is normal for the tip to swell and lose definition after the splint is removed and it will take several months to see the definition again.
