Permanent Swelling and Fluid from Revision Rhinoplasty?
I had a Revision Rhinoplasty 8 months ago on the bridge of my nose. The swelling on the bridge still comes and goes. Sometimes it's so bad that when I squeeze the lower part of the bridge (the cartilage), it seems like it's full of water because it makes a noise. So I squeeze the water out and then when I lie down or after a few minutes, the fluid comes back and makes my nose look swollen (spongy) again.
Is this a permanent side effect of the surgery? Will it ever go away? Also, since the spongy part makes my nose look bigger, would it be a bad thing to go through another surgery in a few months to make the structure thinner?
