Hi Doctors! I did my rhinoplasty on the 19 of april, it went smoothly, normal bruising and swelling as expected, then after a week it began to appear nicely, my problem is that now my nose, almost on the 3rd week is getting bigger, which i believe it happened after i inserted the q tips to extract some mucus and coagolated blood that i cound't endure more.
does it affect the nose job if i insert sumting inside my nose? now is getting uglier day by day.need some advice! regards
No Q tips inside the nose after Rhinoplasty
I must say, using Q tips to remove debris, from the inside of your nose, so soon after Rhinoplasty is definitely a huge NO, NO! I instruct all my Rhinoplasty patients to use saline nasal spray for several months. You should come clean and tell the surgeon what you have done, so he/she can examine the inside of your nose and advise you what may have been injured, if anything, from that maneuver.

Enlarging nose after rhinoplasty from trauma
Anything is possible and you could have disrupted some of the sutures from your rhinoplasty procedure making it appear longer. I would discuss this with your rhinoplasty surgeon and let them look at your nose to see what is going on at this point.
