Swollen Nose In Mornings After 1 Year Post Rhinoplasty

Dear Holland786,

Usually, final results of a Rhinoplasty get established about 12 months post surgery but with patients of thick nasal skin the end results will take a bit more which may explain why you are experiencing a swollen nose in the mornings.

However, I recommend that you consult with your surgeon who will examine your nose in and out to rule out any other possible causes.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The best of luck you.
