4 weeks post op closed rhinoplasty. Hump returned or swelling? (photos)

I've attached photos. Will the latest profile remain or will the hump reduce and straighten?

It takes weeks to months for all the swelling to subside.  Contact your surgeon for an exam to discuss your recovery.

Post rhinoplasty

I inform patients that it takes close to a year for all the swelling to resolve after a rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty swelling


You are still experiencing swelling which can take up to 6-12 months following a rhinoplasty procedure.  If you have concerns you should contact your surgeon to discuss your concerns.
