After significant rhinoplasty, including removal of anterior nasal spine and cartilage, hump removal, filing down the bone and removing cartilage from the tip and either side of my nostrils, both tip and nostrils are still very swollen. I am more concerned about the nostrils as I know tip swelling is normal. Pre-op my surgeon and I agreed that alar base reduction was not necessary and he assured me that my nostrils wouldn't look larger after surgery. Please give me hope that this is temporary.
