Noticeable swelling 8 months after a rhinoplasty is not typical but can occur depending on skin type and when "more work" was done. It's best to discuss your concerns with your surgeon.
SWELLING POST SEPTORHINOPLASTY
Dear brunkozlov, I would suggest seeing your surgeon for a post operative follow up. Your surgeon will know best where you are in your recovery and can determine what is swelling versus scar tissue etc. It is not uncommon to have swelling for an entire year post surgery so see your surgeon for an examination and you should have your concerns answered then.
