Will my skin get thinner? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 3
Yes recovery will tend to improve it. It is all about time and nose surgery takes 1 year for definite result.
It's still too early for you to see the results. The nose and especially the tip holds the swelling for a while. You will start to see some changes in the next 1-2 months. Follow up with your surgeon to see they want to do steroid injection to help swelling go away faster. Good luck.
You are very early on post surgery - it looks like you had very thick skin to start with on your pre-op photos and you should have been informed that you will have a lot more tip swelling as a result and you may not see your final result for 18-24 moths - if swelling is excessive right now after seeing your surgeon to check it may be worthwhile doing a low dose steroid injection to the tip .Please remember also that the photos you are taking with your phone camera are making it look 30% larger/wider than it actually is due to distortion created by the lens of a phone camera - your best idea will be in a bathroom mirror which causes less distortion - so it is not as wide or swollen in reality as it looks
