Postoperative nasal swelling
I would give it time. The cast tends to compress the nose and diminish swelling or edema. I would suspect the long term result should be fine but I would recommend close follow up with your rhinoplasty surgeon.
A splint of the nose prevents edema from developing an keep the nose small. Once the swelling started a can make the nose appear large. With time it can go back to its original size but use of steroid injections can expedite the process.
Nose at 3-4 weeks post
At 3-4 weeks post-op, your nose is likely very swollen. Best to be patient to give it time to heal. ..
