2 weeks past op and still have a high bridge with no curve? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
At 2 weeks there is likely some swelling present throughout the nose. If you wanted a curved profile, I would address this with your rhinoplasty surgeon to see if he thinks that this is still a possibility during the healing process.
It is common to obsess over your new rhinoplasty. I'm sure your plastic surgeon told you that the result will take weeks to months to see the final result. It's hard to do, but you need to relax. The soft tissue holds water like a sponge for a long time. 90% of your result should be evident at 6-8 weeks. The final result will appear at 6 months.
All the best,

2 weeks post rhinoplasty
Thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to have swelling and possibly some asymmetries early in the post rhinoplasty recovery phase. It is usually six months before you will see the end results. Even thought it is difficult, it is important to be patient during the early healing phase.

May be too early to tell
Thanks for your question and photos. It is certainly too early to form strong opinions about the cosmetic outcome of your surgery. Although the shape of the bridge can lose the swelling earlier than the tip, 2 weeks is just too soon to tell. Give it some time and follow up with your surgeon as they know how much they lowerer the bridge etc. Good luck
