I had a nose job 11 weeks ago to narrow my bridge(only by rasping)and to define my tip. My surgeon got rid of the periosteum on my bridge and softened the bony edges a bit. Right now I'm worried how the bridge looks bigger than pre op. The corners are softer though. But if I "stretch" the bridge's skin to the sides, the bridge looks a lot better. But if I feel the nose, it feels hard...Like there's no swelling on top. I have thick skin, so is it possible that I still have swelling on the bridge?

Thick skin at 11 weeks
11 weeks post surgery is still very early for you to judge the results of your surgery, especially if you have thick skin - be patient and follow up with your surgeon
