Is this an early warning sign of an open roof deformity?

Open roof deformity
Thank you for your question and photographs. It is way too early to ascertain what is going on with your nose at this point. My patients usually wear a splint for two weeks. Since there is so much swelling, make sure you have your plastic surgeon evaluate and give you feedback for additional treatment. It is important that you touch your nose as minimally as possible as it could affect the healing process.
Best of luck in your recovery!

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.
