Changes in Rhinoplasty Results

Although it is normal for your rhinoplasty result to change as healing progresses, I'm sorry it does appear that your nasal profile looks fuller at 4 months than it did 2 months post-op. It is difficult to explain, but I don't know what was done during your operation. Hopefully you will improve over the next 12 months.

Nose shape post rhinoplasty

it takes 12-18 months to see your final result from a rhinoplasty. Depending on what was done during the procedure, will determine the swelling and time needed for improvement. Be patient and follow your surgeons advice.
