I had a lip lift today, and I was wondering if my nostrils are going to be permanently wider now, or if it is just the swelling. I had a bullhorn lip lift performed.
My Nostrils Look Wider After Lip Lift, Is this Likely Just From Swelling?

Wide Nostris after Bullhorn Lip Lift
There is no point in getting worried based on your appearance a day after surgery. Upper lip swelling and pull will distort the Nostrils for a while before they become normal. I woud not reach any conclusions for at least 4-6 weeks.
Nostrils wider after lip lift
Your nostrils look larger because of swelling. Swelling gets worse over about 2-3 days. Keep ice on the area.
