ask your surgeon if it would be OK to tape the bridge of your nose nightly with surgical tape (Blenderm or Micropore works best I find).
12 days post closed rhinoplasty
Hello,Yes. The best advice I can give you is to be patient. Don't get discouraged, because your nose will change and improve. Best of luck!
At 2 weeks, you are still early in your recovery period and the nose is expected to be quite swollen at this point.The swelling during this time is rarely symmetric. One side will always resolve more quickly than the other. 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.
Give it some time and things will likely get better. At this time there can be some considerable swelling and induration. Best wishes.
