Swelling at the tip of nose
Thank you for your question. At 3 months you are still early in the post-rhinoplasty recovery. It is not uncommon to have swelling and possibly some asymmetries. Even though it is difficult, it is important to be patient during the early healing phase.
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.
Recovering from rhinoplasty: tip swelling
Recovering from rhinoplasty is a healing process. Part of that process is waiting for the swelling to go down. The tip region is the last area to calm down even if the rest of the nose has already settled.You'll see the most reduction in 4-6 weeks. Next you'll have 6-9 months of gradual dissipation with occasional flares of swelling. At a year it will be close to your end result; however, the nose is known to continue healing and refining for years after your surgery. Keep up with your follow-up appointments so your surgeon can keep you on track for a safe and happy result.
It may still be temporary at 3 months. If the tip feels hard and slightly insensate, then edema is still present. You may need to wait up to a year for the swelling to completely resolve and be able to see your final appearance.
Tip swelling is normal after rhinoplasty and can last a year or longer. Best of luck with your results.
This sounds normal. Tip swelling after rhinoplasty can take up to a year to completely resolve and see the final result. This may even appear exaggerated if the swelling above it along the bridge has improved sooner.
Depending on the type(open vs. closed) of surgery you had, that tip/supratip swelling can last up to 12-18months after surgery. Occassionally a small injection of steroids is warranted for excessive swelling. If you are very concerned, bring it up with your surgeon.
Tip swelling after rhinoplasty
The concerns you are expressing are very typical after rhinoplasty. The profile of the nose will "settle down" much sooner than the frontal view. It is typical for the nose to appear wide for some time after surgery. The frontal view of the nose will settle over months. The tip of the nose is the last part of the nose where a reduction in swelling will be noted. Everyone heals at a different rate but, on average, the thicker the skin of the nose, the longer it takes for the swelling to subside.
