Rhinoplasty and swelling

It is normal to feel swollen areas inside your nose 8 days after surgery especially at the incision lines.  Your surgeon may have also inserted internal splints and they usually come out after a week or two.  I would ask your surgeon about this on your follow up.

8 days post surgery

8 days post surgery is still very early for you to judge the results of your surgery - be patient and follow up with your surgeon
