You will still be significantly swollen 8 days after surgery. In general, post-operative swelling can give the appearance of asymmetry, irregularities, and a larger appearing nose. It is best to be patient during the healing process, as your nose will change over time. In general, 70% of the swelling is resolved after the first 3 months and the remainder goes down over time. The final result is not evident for 18-24 months after surgery. I would recommend speaking to your surgeon regarding any concerns, as he or she knows the details of your procedure. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
