Nasal tip swelling after rhinoplasty improves for a year
Thank you for your question. At 4 weeks after rhinoplasty is very normal to be quite swollen in the tip. He or swelling will go down significantly over the next 6-8 weeks however final result will not be apparent for a year.
Your nasal swelling will improve
Even at 4 weeks, the nose will have persistent swelling after a rhinoplasty. In fact, it may take months or even a year (or more) for nasal swelling to fully resolve. So, be patient, your nose will continue to improve. Thank you for sharing your photo and concern. Best wishes.
