Do I need revision rhinoplasty or is it just swelling? (Photo)

Thank you for your question and pictures. It is not uncommon to have swelling and possibly some asymmetries early in the post-rhinoplasty recovery phase. It is usually six months before you will see the end results. At that time, any concerns should be evaluated with your Facial Plastic Surgeon. Best of luck
You are still early in your healing process, but the swelling in the bridge of the nose is usually the quickest to resolve. Unfortunately, your nasal bridge still appears wide in your post-operative photographs. This part of your nose is made of bone which is most likely the reason it is "really hard." You may need further work on the bones of your nose to correct the "wide-top". I would follow up with your surgeon in order to get more information.
