Swelling after Bulbous Nasal Tip Reduction
Thanks for the question. Your swelling appears to be about average for a bulbous tip reduction. The lower third of the nose often takes the longest for resolution of swelling. Just give it some more time and it should resolve on its own.

At 2 weeks out you still have significant swelling. It can take up to a full year to see the delicate detail of the nose that your surgeon created. Your swelling will likely subside and you'll be happy with your result (but time will tell). Continue to follow closely with your surgeon and follow their recommendations. Best of luck!
