2 months post op, some advices:

Thank you very much for enquire.Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
Kind regards,

Fixing a cartilage graft

I think I see what you are speaking about but it is far too early to fix it. Things are going to still change a lot. Continue to follow your surgeon's instructions. I wouldn't consider revising till 6 months after your surgery. Hang in there.
