Swelling after rhinoplasty
Thank you for your pictures! To be frank with you, it can take a full year before you know how your nose is going to settle. Swelling after rhinoplasty depends on not only your body's capability to heal, but also on the complexity of the procedure itself and what was done during it. It is not uncommon to see fluctuating swelling as things begin to settle down. Usually by 6 months you are 90% of the way done with healing, with the remaining 10% taking the last few months. Hang in there! Remember, when in doubt, feel free to contact your surgeon. Best of luck!
