Some Days I Like my Nose and Other Days It Looks Awful!

I had a revision septoplasty and rhinoplasty 8 weeks ago and there are some days where my nose looks ok and other days it looks not so great. It's these 'not so great days' that I start worrying about the final result. Is it normal to have these good and bad days?

Fluctuations in shape of nose after rhinoplasty

it is very common to have the described good and bad days after rhinoplasty - hopefully, with passage of time, you find that you have more good days than bad

Variation in Nasal Appearance 2 Months after Revision Rhinoplasty

It is normal to have variations in nasal appearance 2 months after surgery, especially after a revision rhinoplasty. This is a typical observation as swelling resolves. The "great days" are probably an insight to the final result. Be patient.
