Im about six months post-op rhinoplasty and still very swollen especially from the middle to the tip of my nose.Originally I went in because I had a bulbous tip and now it looks bigger than before! I would expect my nose to go down darastically especially in 6 months but i feel like its not going down. It also feels tight and sore is this normal?
6 Months Post Op Rhinoplasty and Still Very Swollen is This Normal?

Thicker skin noses in general need plenty of time to develop their final shape – you may wish to see your surgeon about Kenalog injections
