3 weeks post op, some advices:
It's too early to make value judgments with only 3 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.

I recommend having a humidifier at your bedside and lots of salt water spray for your nose.
Check in with your surgeon to make sure you're healing on schedule but all should continue to get better.
