2 Months Post Op but Not Happy, When Will I See The Final Result?

I had an open rhinoplasty 2 months ago. I also had a deviated septum. Its been 9 weeks but i still think my nose looks upturned alot and there is a hump on my bridge which i hate. Will they change as the swelling goes down because even my face is still swolen.

Rhinoplasty Healing Time



2 months post -op is way to early to judge your results. Both the hump and the up-turned appearence may improve greatly over the next 6-9 months. I would wait it out before doing any revision work.

Patience after rhinoplasty



Two months is still early in the healing process. I think patience is important, as there is still considerable swelling 2 months after a rhinoplasty. If after 6 months you are still not happy, then you may want to consider letting your surgeon know so that a revision can be planned. You should wait about one year before undergoing revision surgery.
