Swelling 14 months after revision rhinoplasty?

Swelling generally lingers for one year following surgery. Depending on exactly what is performed during surgery and your skin type, swelling may potentially linger for a bit longer. Circumstances that can affect swelling are:

1) Thickness of the patient's skin
2) Whether the procedure was a revision
3) Whether tip work was performed
4) Whether the procedure was open or closed

I would recommend following up with your surgeon, as he/she knows the details of your procedure. Thank you and best of luck!
