At eleven days after surgery, it is quite possible you still have significant swelling. Please give your nose a chance to heal. It takes at least a year to recover from rhinoplasty and see your final result. You will notice that the swelling subsides gradually.

Nasal silicone implant

improvement after most any kind of rhinoplasty comes slowly.  This excess of a good rhinoplasty should be measured in months and years as opposed to days and weeks.  Give it more time and follow-up with your surgeon closely.

Nose implant

Dear ernest413,

  • If your tip is still large, then this will hide the results of the implant (did it go on your bridge)
  • Tip swelling can take months to come down, but you are still very early in the healing stages
  • I would touch base with your surgeon to get an idea of what to expect
  • Did he do work on your tip?

Best,
