Is it swelling or has something gone wrong?

I always ask my patients to call my office if they have concerns. It takes our bodies at least 6 months to heal after surgery, nose surgery may take even longer. You are only about 2 weeks out from surgery and this is very early in the healing period.  You can share your concerns with your surgeon's office. thanks.

Since we do not have your pre-operative pictures it is difficult to assess.

Usually you should expect swelling at 2 weeks.  It sound that you are palpating the grafts.  Give the swelling time and go back to your surgeon to address your concerns
