I had rhinoplasty 2 weeks ago with very little swelling. Now, I have a cold or allergies with a lot of congestion. My nose is now swollen and the bump (which was there previously) is now bigger. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Cold 2 Weeks after Rhinoplasty
It is normal to have nasal congestion and external swelling 2 weeks after rhinoplasty. However, you feel this is getting worse. Therefore, see your surgeon for evaluation and possible treatment.
