Swelling Post Open Rhinoplasty

In general, an open rhinoplasty causes more post operative swelling. At 10 mths most of the swelling should be resolved but it is still possible that swelling still exists. Did you have any trauma, sun burn, etc.?

Consult your surgeon and trust the advice or seek a second opinion.

Best wishes
