A bump returns after my rhinoplasty
Swelling is a normal finding after rhinoplasty. Edema always persists for a few months and your final result won't be realized until after one year. After only one week I would be patient with the recovery.
You are very 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.
