About 2 months ago I underwent open septorhinoplasty with turbinates reduction. Since then I've been very worried about when will my nose ever feel the same like before the op or will it never be the same again? My surgeon says nothing was placed inside no implant no nothing so does that mean my nose will eventually feel the same again once the swelling settles? My nose is very hard and the columella is still stiff and pain. I've been going back to my surgeon he says its normal. Depressed!
Will my Nose Ever Feel the Same Like Pre-op Again?

Nose and stiffness
Your nose should go back to "normal' once the swelling comes down. It may take several more months even up to a year.
As the nose heals after surgery, swelling subsides. Hardness or firmness at the tip and columella are very common in the first few weeks after surgery. In all likelihood, your nose will feel like it did before surgery very soon. Good luck.
