Nose Hump Still Present After Rhinoplasty
I would try and relax. Swelling of the dorsum (bridge) can occur despite everyone's best efforts. In fact, sometimes the splint is not applied perfectly and the skin gets "tented up" in the process. Give it time. If the skin is soft and squishy you should rest assured there is considerable swelling present. At this point in time it is best to trust your surgeon's instincts. Best wishes.
Dorsal hump reduction
Without seeing before photos and photos of your nose at this point, this question is impossible to answer. With that said, dorsal swelling typically occurs to varying degrees after hump reduction and some residual hump is often visible temporarily for that reason. This should go down over the next 6 weeks or so. Please adhere to your surgeon's post-OP instruction and follow up with him or her regularly. Good luck!
