I had open tip rhnoplasty to remove the hump and straighten my nose about a month ago the hump is gone and I'm happy with that but it still seems asymetrical

one month after surgey after taking a pictue one nostril seems higher up and slightly larger with a deeper scar than the other which looks relatively normal. Is this due to swelling and will it even it's self out or will I need revision if possible to fix in a years time?

Hey, I am having the same issue and posted some videos on youtube. My swelling is so hard and it is really numb on one side more than the other so when I push nothing happens :( Check out my blog to see what I mean http://www.youtube.com/user/TineERbeaner Good luck!

Hi Jennace,

Video diaries are really helpful. Would you mind writing a quick review of your experience too? We can embed your Youtube videos in the review; just mention the link when you submit.

Thanks!

Thanks so much thats reassuring I'm glad others have been through the same I'll keep you updated! I'm going back to see my surgeon in a couple of weeks so hopefully he can do that for me as I don't want to start pressing it myself just yet?

Hi, I am post one month rhinoplasty also. I had the same thing happened it looked asymetrical from the front its all swelling. I went to my Dr and he pushed real hard on the side that looked uneven and I could hear a squeeze of fluid come out on the inside. It was obviously the swelling cause he checked the bones they were even. After he did the two the side I could see it looking more even. The morning is the worst because your lying flat during the night and you wake up like a ballon in the morning. He gave me instructions to press doen with my thumb on the swollen side every morning to drain the fluid. Don't freak out because its only a month remember it takes ^ months to a year to see the final results. I freaked out at first cause my nose changed shapes with healing its normal for it to look worst then get better. Don't think revision just yet.
