Normal to Have a Lot of Asymmetric Tip Swelling 8 Months Post Open Rhinoplasty?

My left side is more swollen and there is a bump inside the top of my nose next to my septum and on the right side I feel a bally/knot under my skin. I also formed a Callus on the top of my bridge that is noticeable in pictures and people think it's a bruise sometimes. AND my nose looks horrible in pictures.My Surgeon hasn't been much help and just says it should all heal in time. I don't feel convinced especially after coming across some bad reviews about him AFTER I had the Surgery.

Must wait at least 12 months to assess issues at hand


At this point you have to be patient and wait for at least 12 months (from the time of your surgery) to really assess the issues at hand.
