Swelling , some advices:
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.

Lump on Nose
Thank you for your question.
After rhinoplasty, it's common to have swelling. It can take months (even a year or more) for that swelling to go away and for you to see the final shape of your nose. Regarding the stitch, I recommend asking your doctor why the stitch was there (if it was holding a graft in place, for instance), and what can be done about the hole.
