Dear Carlam88: First contact your surgeon with any questions. Second it is way to soon to make any determination on post-operative changes. Remember it takes one year to see final result. Hope this helps.

Rhinoplasty post-op

At three days post surgery it is way way way too early to see the result. Your nose will be very swollen for weeks if not months.

Thanks for sharing and relax. At only 3 days after rhinoplasty you are still swollen and things will settle tremendously. Be in touch with your surgeon who knows your situation best for guidance. Good luck

First call for surgeon to discuss all post op issues. Second IT HAS BEEN ONLY a FEW DAYS!! You have not even hit the max. swelling time yet.....
