       Images or an exam would be helpful.  This early after rhinoplasty, it is premature to be concerned about the final result.   The swelling is going to be very prominent at this early stage.  I would follow with your surgeon.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Kenneth Hughes, MD

Still a lot of changes anticipated five weeks after rhinoplasty.

Without a picture it's difficult to comment. However at five weeks there certainly is persistent swelling that should get better with time.
