Nose still swollen at 2.5 months
Your nose looks swollen from top to bottom which is usually the case 2.5 months after a rhinoplasty. The final result from nose surgery is judged 6-12 months after the operation. I would make your concerns known to your surgeon but you may end up being happy with the result in the end. It is premature to be thinking about revision at this time. Good luck.
2 1/2 months is too early to tell the results of rhinoplasty
The nose continues to heal and swelling to settle for a year or more. 2 1/2 months is too early to consider any revision. Fascial grafts also tend to swell a lot for a number of months. So please be patient, you might find that eventually your nose will turn out just like expected.
