What to do to reduce tip swollen at 5 month post rhinoplasty.

Post operative swelling
It is common to have swelling up to 1 year after surgery so it is likely you will notice more improvement with time. Sometimes steroid injections can be helpful to speed the recovery. That being said, I suggest you visit with your surgeon as he/she may have suggestions to help with your particular situation.
Swelling in tip after 5 months
- It would be good to see your surgeon to see if you can use steroid injections
- They tend to reduce swelling and the thickness of the skin
- If you have thicker skin before, expect to have swelling in your nose that will last even 12-18 months
