Swelling after rhinoplasty
At 9 days post-op, you are near the peak of your swelling. In general, 70% of the swelling is resolved after the first 3 months and the remainder goes down over time. Swelling may be influenced by the following: Whether the procedure was open or closed, whether the procedure was a revision, the thickness of the patient's skin, and whether or not tip work was performed. I would give it some time and see how you continue to heal. The final result may not be evident for 18-24 months after surgery. Your surgeon should be able to answer any post-operative questions you have, as they know the details of your surgery and exactly what was performed. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

This early after rhinoplasty, it is premature to be concerned about the final result. The swelling is going to be very prominent at this early stage. Kenneth Hughes, MD
