How do you feel about your new nose today? Can you please post some before and more recent front and profile pictures? I am really curious about the recovery process and the changes over time. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

I have the same problem and I'm 6 weeks post op. How did your problem finally developed? Did the swelling finally go away?

Hi it looks like swelling. I am also 2 months post op from rhinoplasty and my bridge and nostrils still swollen, unfortunately after my rhino I developed an infection and had to have it drained which set me back. I have been told takes 6-12 months to see final result. just give it more time. Looks great though! Good luck

just 2 month post-op is kind of early to do anything

try posting the pics in Q&A section to get other doctors' opinion

Hey, I wonder if your nose is just taking a bit longer than usual for the swelling to go down.

What does your nose look like now compared to before the surgery? Did your surgeon give you images before hand of what you could expect your nose to look like afterwards?

I hope it all works out for you.

Perhaps you could talk to her and understand exactly what it is she is going to do to improve it. Will the cost of the sutures/any revision surgery be covered by your surgeon? If your not happy with her opinion/suggestion you could seek a second opinion from another surgeon?
