After 4 months, nose changed shape and has become bigger. Is this part of recovery? (photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Without seeing a "before" photo of your nose, and a photo soon after surgery, it is difficult to make a conclusion about the current state your nose is in. It is quite possible that you are experiencing swelling as swelling can be present for up to a year in most cases after rhinoplasty surgery. I would definitely recommend you schedule a follow up visit with your surgeon soon in order to discuss your concerns, and so the surgeon can advise a treatment protocol.
Best of luck!
