Post op rhinoplasty
As others have noted, it is very early to know how your outcome will turn out. Not to mention that without knowing what your nose looked like beforehand, or knowing what was done intra-operatively, making an assessment is rather difficult. I strongly advise you to keep close follow up with your operating surgeon as they will be able to guide you through the post operative process best. Best of luck.
It is far too early to ascertain results from your rhinoplasty. Your nose appears swollen at this time which is very normal three weeks after surgery. It is best to maintain close follow up with your rhinoplasty surgeon in this post-operative period.
