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.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Overall your nose looks great. I would talk to your doctor about what you have noticed. He can evaluate your nose and determine if this is due to swelling. He may also recommend nasal exercises to help straighten your nose further. In general, 13 days is too soon to judge the final result. Try not to play with your nose because you may displace grafts that your doctor may have placed during your surgery.
Early Rhinoplasty Results
Congratulations, you appear to have a nice early rhinoplasty result and as you indicated, it is almost perfectly straight even after only 13 days. A normal recovery takes time for the swelling and tissue to properly heal. I would expect that as you heal you will begin to appreciate further improvements. The less you touch the cartilage and pull on your nose while you heal the better. Manipulation or probing the inside will only add to the swelling and may delay your recovery. Follow your surgeon's post operative care recommendations and keep all scheduled follow up appointments so that you can be monitored and reassured. Best wishes.
