Rhinoplasty freak-out

You are way too early in your course to be worried. The pictures show what looks like a great result. Relax, be patient, and I think you will see a pleasing final result. If you have specific concerns you should discuss them with your surgeon.

Botched surgery?

Wow, you are really getting carried away. It looks like you are off to a great result. I don't see any of the things you are worried about. Take a deep breath, go to sleep early and wake up to a fresh start.

25days is very early. The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.

You are in the early postoperative period. It will take up to a year before things settle completely. Give it time. Good luck. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
