Will the bridge of my nose ( profile view) become flatter to my face!?
Doctor Answers 3
You more than likely have a lot of swelling and you need to allow it to settle down. Best to give it time. Good luck.
Thank you for your question! Yes, you are correct that you have quite a bit of swelling, even after 16 days of healing. One of the places that swelling can last is in the dorsum (or bridge) of the nose. This will resolve with time, but can last up to 6 months to 1 year. Be sure to discuss your concerns with your surgeon, as well.
I hope that this helps!
Swelling after a Rhinoplasty
16 days is too early to judge the results from your rhinoplasty. I am sure the bridge of your nose is swollen and will make your nose appear large. I would be patient and let your nose heal.
I hope this helps.
