Swelling post rhinoplasty
Swelling after rhinoplasty
Swelling is completely normal immediately after rhinoplasty...and it may persist for weeks afterwards! Do not be concerned as you just had your surgery - give it time and enjoy your new nose. Any questions or concerns feel free to contact your surgeons office as they will be more than happy to help. Depending on what maneuvers were performed during your surgery you may have more or less swelling, so that will be a good indicator. Best of luck.
Nasal appearance one day postop
Your nose is going to swell quite a bit after the surgery. The tip cannot be splinted, as its skeleton is a C-shaped cartilage, not bone. So don't judge your result for 2 to 3 months. It really takes almost a year for the tip swelling to resolve. I tell my patients that 85% of the swelling resolves in 6 to 8 weeks. The rest takes 9 to 12 months. Best of luck.
