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!
