How Long Does It Take for the Main Swelling to Subside Following Septorhinoplasty?
I had a septorhinoplasty procedure two weeks ago today. I had my stitches out and steri strips off yesterday. It was quite a shock when I saw myself, I thought the swelling would have subsided quite a lot by now. I understand it takes up to a year or more for the nose to fully heal and to see the 'finished product' so to speak. For want of a better description I feel like Mr Potato Head with a false nose stuck on. It looks far larger than pre-surgery. My surgeon is not very approachable post surgery.
