Palpable bone after nose job

Dear rosieXO,I seams that you have a problem with your nasal bones after rhinoplasty. They do not seem symmetrical. Although the shape will change next 6 or more months eventually it seams that you will need a small revision. Please keep close contact with your surgeon. She/he will do the right thing for you. Good luck.

Swelling , some advices:

Thank you very much for enquire. It's too early to make value judgments with 2 months after a rhinoplasty.
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
