Doctor Answers 4
I believe there is a genuine problem with your mplant that is sitting bent in a curved tunnel and is sitting too high giving your bridge excessive height - you need to have this adjust - I do not think this is due to swelling
2 weeks post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.
It's too early to make value judgments with 2 weeks after a rhinoplasty.
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.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
At 2 weeks, you are extremely early in your recovery period and the nose is expected to be quite swollen at this point. The majority of the swelling will resolve in 3-6 months, and will continue to resolve as your nose heals for up to 1-2 years.
You have not reached your final shape as the nose will continue to heal and reduce in size for up to a year. Once it does reach its final shape you may be more pleased with the appearance of your nose.

Although its still early post-op... the implant looks like its sitting in the wrong position. L-shaped nasal implants are can extrude and cause tension on the nasal skin. The only real way to assess this would be have you come in for physical examination to determine how much of this swelling and how much of this is mal-positioned implant.
