Sorry but at 2 years there isn't any swelling left. The swollen area is something else. Like scar, bone or cartilage.

After two years the swelling has resolved. Subtle changes may occur throughout life, but  if your not satisfied at this time have a consutation to consider  revision surgery.

Septorhinoplasty Swelling

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Most nasal swelling resolves within one month after rhinoplasty, while the final swelling takes at least one year to settle down. The nose will continue to change slowly with time, and plastic surgery does not stop the natural aging process. Swelling is not common 2 years after rhinoplasty. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a plastic surgeon help determine appropriate options for you.

Hi Vamsi,

After two years, it is not swelling.  It is time to consider revision surgery to even out your nose.  Consult with qualified rhinoplasty surgeons and then choose your surgeon most carefully.

Good luck and be well.

After 2 years very unlikely you have ANY swelling left. Sounds like a poor result. No photos posted so seek opinions from boarded surgeons in your area.

I don't believe that the asymmetry that you notice is swelling.  It most probably represents the asymmetry in the cartilage.
