Why is the Tip of my Nose So Swollen After Septoplasty?

I broke my nose in Aug, in Sept., I had a septoplasty, submucosal turbinectomy & polyps removed. Everything I look up says that a Rhinoplasty takes a year or more to heal, but I didn't have a rhinoplasty.

Swelling at 1 year after Septoplasty

Hi,

If you had your procedure last August then you should not have any swelling at this point. You may want to ask your doctor what he thinks.

Best,

Dr.S.
