Unsatisfied With Rinoplasty Results

Hello,

 

I am sorry that you had a bad experience after your rhinoplasty.

Nonetheless, at 7 weeks post-surgery, I believe it is too early to assess the final results of your procedure since they take about 12 months to be full established usually.

That being said, I recommend that you communicate with your surgeon as he knows the full details of your surgery.

Without photos (before/after) and physical examination, it is hard to know the causes behind what you have described.

In case a corrective surgery was needed, you should wait till you achieve a certain level of recovery: usually at about 6 months post-op.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your inquiry and the best of luck to you.
