As stated by others it is way to early to make any judgement. Some asymmetries will resolve after the swelling is gone. an that may take months. In some other cases pre-existing minor asymmetries, those that you may not even have noticed prior to surgery, will not be changed by rhinoplasty. Be patient.
- Thanks for the photo.
- The only think that you should concentrate during these initial weeks of healing is to take care of your self with rest, eating well, and relaxing.
- The swelling in the nostrils will change (even when you lay on one side more than the other)
- Follow your surgeons instructions and take care of the nose as instructed.
Best Wishes on a great outcome.
Short answer: it's far too soon to say. These minor asymmetries are quite common due to early post-operative swelling and can often take several weeks to resolve. Just give it time.
Not only did you have a rhinoplasty that she is had direct work on the base of the nose itself. Some asymmetries to be expected. You'll need to wait for resolution of swelling to see if it corrects itself.
Thank you for the picture and your question. At 3 days post-op, there is significant swelling in the tip of the nose. This is sometimes more on one side or the other. It is really too early to make any judgment about results -- this is the hardest part of the recovery, just being patient. If, in the end, your nose does not turn out exactly the way you want, there are always options for subtle modification. This is generally not done for a year, however. Good luck and take care.
This early after rhinoplasty it is hard to know what the final result will be. It's fairly common to have asymmetric swelling after rhinoplasty, especially at this early stage.
You should continue to follow up with your surgeon to make sure everything is healing normally of course.
