Rhinoplasty is a slow process of resolution. As mentioned above it can take at least a year to show the final result. Of all the plastic surgery procedures rhinoplasty results are measured in millimeters and the difference between a good result and a great one can be a fraction of a millimeter! If your surgeon has recommended taping to hasten the process that is commonly done but your doctor knows your case best. I know waiting for the final result can be a challenge but be patient.
While two weeks is definitely too short of a time to make
any kind of decisions as to the result you have from surgery, a more likely
time for evaluation of the nasal dorsum is 6 to 8 weeks post op. At that point, issues that are quite
obvious are probably issues that will remain.
In some instances, the swelling of the nasal dorsum is
related to so-called supra tip deformity, which can be easily corrected by
resection of a small amount of cartilage at the level of the dorsal nasal tip
of the nose, at the same time as projection of the nasal tip is increased.
At this point, rest assured that things will change over the
next few weeks.
At two weeks after surgery, there will be a lot of swelling. You have to give it time to heal before seeing the final result.
The swelling after rhinoplasty takes a painfully long time to resolve. Two weeks is definitely not enough time for the swelling to resolve. The swelling can take up to 12-18 months to go away! Try to be patient and talk to your surgeon about your concerns. He or she will be able to give you more personalized answers.
