Patience...

One month is very early for recovery following rhinoplasty, especially if an open approach was used.  The tip does tend to settle over time (months to years) depending on the techniques used so I would not despair.  I would follow up with your surgeon and ask about it, though.  Good Luck!

Upward turned nose

Hi,

Swelling typically takes a full year to completely subside.  At one month, you probably still have about 30% of your swelling remaining depending in your skin thickness.  I would be patient and let the swelling subside and you should continue to see an improvement

Changes In Nose After Rhinoplasty

Dear Dineshissad,

 

Swelling will not resolve at two months post your surgery. It is important to have a little more patience so nature can take its course and recovery can progress.

 

The tip of your nose will progress with time. I believe that it is too early to assess the results of your surgery.

 

I encourage you to keep your surgeon in the loop of your progress.

 

The best of luck to you.
