Persistent Dorsal Elevation
1. Swelling- Swelling along the upper portion of the nose is often underappreciated aspects of rhinoplasty and can take sometimes months to resolve
2. Boney callous- Swelling along the bridge and rasping can create soft tissue called callous which may require an additional procedure to remove
3. Dorsal hump- Overly conservative procedure may require additional procedure to further improve profile.
In general, it is best to wait and see how profile adjusts over time to see if anything is needed to improve profile.
