Rhinoplasty Results at 3 Months
I know that it is frustrating to not have your ideal nose yet, but at 3 months post op, it is very common for the tip in particular to still be swollen. For now, be patient. If at 6 months post op, you are still unhappy then schedule an appointment to see your surgeon.
Rhinoplasty at 3 months
I do see your concerns with your dorsum, but you also have to be patient with the tip as there is often quite a bit of swelling still present at 3 months. Most surgeons would wait a year and sometimes longer to perform a revision.
Hello and thank you for your question. At three months there is still significant swelling. However, I do see the issues you describe. I always recommend that you return to your primary surgeon and share your concerns. If there is still cause for concern, then seek a second opinion.
Best wishes and good luck.
