I had my rhinoplasty done 2 months ago. After the first month, most of the swelling had disappeared, although I am aware that it will be completely gone after a year or so. However, yesterday my nose suddenly develop more swelling much more than it had been yesterday. Moreover, when I give it a push, clear liquid leaks from my rhinoplasty wound. Is this a normal healing occurrence?
Is It Normal to Have Swelling Come Back After Some Time in Rhinoplasty?

Increased Swelling after Rhinoplasty
It is not normal to have swelling come back some time after rhinoplasty. My first concern with fluid leakage would be the possibility of an infection. I suggest you see your surgeon as soon as possible.
