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.

Thank you for your pictures - the magic question, as always, is just how long ago did you have your surgery. The reason I ask is simple - the nose can take between 6 months and a year (longer if its a revision) to settle down and give you your final result. So to answer your question, absolutely. The swelling over the nasal dorsum as well as what is giving your nose a lack of definition and pushing it down could certainly be swelling. When in doubt, check in with your PS. It is always best to have them take a look as they know exactly what was done in the surgery and can give you a better assessment as to what further changes to expect through the healing process.
Best of luck!
Thanks for your question. It takes our bodies at least 6 months to heal
after surgery, nose surgery may take even longer. You could still be very early
in the healing period. When patients have questions I always invite them
to come to my office so I can fully evaluate the situation. Best of luck to you.
