Immediate results after alarplasty

Thank you for the question.  It is difficult to provide any accurate insight without pictures.  However, after alarplasty or Weir Excision of the nose, you should see results immediately.  It takes several months for the swelling to subside to see final results; however, you should see a relatively significant change right away.As always, an in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon would be the best way to assess your needs and obtain reliable medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.

Judging about the pos-rhinoplasty results

In general, we do not judge about the outcome of the surgery for a year since swelling can make a difference. You may want to be patient for a while, but you do not have to wait a year. You can discuss your concerns with your surgeon in 3-6 months, if it does not get better.
