Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Was the Hump in my Nose Adequately Removed?
It's been about 2 1/2 months since I had an open rhinoplasty to reduce the hump in my nose and give me a smooth profile. Immediately after the cast came off, my nose looked really good although a little "fat" and slightly upturned. However, during the past month or so, the bridge of my nose seems to be re-forming a hump. It's hard and starts immediately after my nose begins to dip down. If I press it down with my fingers, it does seem to go down. I have thick olive skin. Is this just swelling?
Swelling Post Rhinoplasty is common
