I had revision rhinoplasty 3 months ago as my left nostril had completely collapsed and had trouble breathing. My nose is now alot wider and longer but my surgeon says this is just swelling. I now have a bump that appeared after one month on right side of my bridge which is not going down with massaging.the shape of my nose has completely changed. I understand my nose would be slightly wider with grafts placed but i feel this is too wide. can you please advise if this is just swelling?
I Had Revision Rhinoplasty 3 Months Ago, is This Swelling?
It could be swelling at 3 months after a Rhinoplasty. From the photos, your nasal skin appears thick so you might consider asking your Rhinoplasty Surgeon about possible kenalog 10 injections to the supratip area as well as nasal massage to remove the residual swelling. Hope this helps.

Swelling 3 Months after Rhinoplasty Revision with Grafts
Swelling may persist for a longer time after revision rhinoplasty depending on the number of grafts, their size, and where they were placed. Hopefully, the middle 1/3rd of your nose will narrow. You're only 3 months post-op.
Swelling after grafts
You swelling is likely post-op changes. However dpeending upon what type of grafts were placed, mid vault collapse issues requiring spreader grafts may make the midvault look a bit wider.
