How long does it take after rhinoplasty for the swollen nose to go back to normal and do I need to do any massage?
can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the
nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness
of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.
