2 Weeks Post Revision Open Rhinoplasty?

2 weeks after revision rhinoplasty
You are still experiencing a great deal of swelling at 2 weeks post-op, and it is difficult to give you advice without examining you in person. I would recommend speaking with your surgeon to see what he/she advises. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
