Septorhinoplasty 4 days post op. My nose still looks exactly the same except swollen

I had a septorhinoplasty 4 days ago. And Im wondering why my nose is just as skew and looks exactly the same as it did before. Its skew where it was skew before. Did they maybe skip the rhinoplasty side of things and just do a septoplasty

Thank you very much for enquire.

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.
