It's impossible to answer well without seeing a photo.Two weeks is really too early to tell.I suspect that you are fine. Give another 6 weeks.

Changes After Rhinoplasty

Dear Edora,

Without photos (before/after) and the full details of your surgery it is not possible to provide you with a solid opinion.

Nonetheless, at 2 weeks post-op it is too early to assess what your final results will look luck.

I encourage you to be a little more patient as the end results of a rhinoplasty get established at about 12 months after the procedure.

I hope this helps and please keep your surgeon in the loop of your recovery process.

Thank you for your post.

Best of luck to you.
