31 Female Rhinoplasty 6 Days Post Op - Staten Island, NY

I am 6 days post op. My goal was to narrow my nose...

I am 6 days post op. My goal was to narrow my nose and make it less bulbous. I had no septum work done, and aside from the packing, i had no discomfort. It is still very red, but I had no bruising. It is definitely thinner but seems bigger to me. I know that the swelling tales a long time to heal, but I would love some feedback. THANK YOU.

My tip is so big and low and swollen...today is exactly 1 week...I also have a small blister...and what seem to be some type of blind pimple :( I know it's swelling. ..but u have think skin, and am scared it will look like this for a while. Will I see major improvement soon. I know the f inalienable result will take a while, but hopefully it gets smaller and my profile looks better.

2 weeks post op

I am still very swollen and got a blister on the side of nose which is finally starting to heal, but I am starting to see the shape and looking forward to the end result. My tip is still completely numb and hard. Would love any feedback and would be happy to answer any questions.

9 weeks post op

My nose is still swollen and red. I have a dent on one side. My Dr. Assures me it is swelling due to my thick skin. Please some input.

I have your before nose! It's crazy, I've been looking for someone to compare myself to (bulbous tip), and yours is the closest I've found. Did you have any work done one the bridge? To change your profile? I have a small bump I would like to remove in addition to narrowing the tip. I really look forward to seeing your results in the next year! Your results look great so far:)

Did you have any bridge narrowing, or just tip reduction, I can see a great difference in your nose it looks nice. I have a bulbous nose and it lakes definition. I am doing research.

You can tell the difference between the 6 day post op and the 2 weeks photos that your swelling has come down. How do you know you have thick skin? Did the surgeon tell you so? :)

Has the recovery been painful? You look good so soon. Lots of changes in the next year. I even noticed 2 years later on my cousin some changes. She is so happy and her results are great!. I'm so nervous and excited for my nose job. Couple more weeks. Is there anything your doing to help your recovery go smoother? Any tips wouls help. I think...thinking positive and hopeful is a must...and lots of cold compress and rest. :)

I have to say there was very little pain. I had packing and found that uncomfortable but not painful. Just get plenty of rest, and think of your recovery as a mini vacation. Watch some good movies, relax and pamper yourself :)

How is your swollen so far? Mine is 5 days after op and it's very huge. Im getting really frustated because my nose isnt as big as this before. I cant even go out just because I feel so shame of this huge nose :(

I have read many stories and saw my cousins healing process. Everyone has swelling. A year from now your nose is going to look so different. Already it looks a lot thinner then before. Definitely be patient...I have to remind myself that when I have my surgery:)

The big day is May 28. I'm so nervous. Is your side profile picture now??
  • Reply
Yes:( I know it's just super swollen, because my profile was fine before. The tip just swelled up so much :( I just hope, it starts to go down.

It does look thinner but if you provide more photos it would help us give you detailed feedback. I am 15 days post revision rhino and I am still swollen. We have to be patient for the swelling to go down.

It definitely looks more shapely and refined. It looks great and I'm sure it will be even better as swelling goes down. Do you have any more pics?
