I Had Rhinoplasty 3 Weeks, Does my Nose Look Swollen? (photo)

I had open primary rhinoplasty 3 weeks ago. I had my nose straightened from the front. I had the hump removed. I had the tip reduced.I also had my nose to have a slight curve. But to me my nose still looks very swollen. What can I expect in the future? Will my nose looks slimmer and more defined? Will someone please give me a analysis of what I can expect? I'm think skinned I'm 23 year-old male. I have attached photos of me before and 3 weeks after the surgery.

Rhinoplasty 3 Weeks Ago and Swelling

   Your nose is much better than before at 3 weeks.  Give your plastic surgeon a thank you.  At 3 weeks, you can anticipate a marked reduction in swelling over the next few months.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
