I am 3 weeks post Rhinoplasty, why can't I see a 'supratip depression'? could swelling still be hiding it?

The Tip needs Time....
Many people worry about this after their surgery and they key is to be patient. In the rhinoplasty world, 3 weeks is just the beginning. Give it time, but if you are really worried please speak to your surgeon.
Supratip break or depression
3 week swelling post-rhinoplasty and lack of supratip depression
It is not uncommon to have fullness in this area as 3 weeks is actually on the early side of the year-long healing process. Occasionally, this area will require periodic injections of steroids to decrease the swelling. Ask your surgeon about your concerns and whether a steroid injection is appropriate for you.
