Immediate post op rhinoplasty swelling
Your nose will be swollen to some degree for at least six months after surgery, the swelling will reduce gradually. One week is too early to gauge results but you appear to be right on track. If you have any questions, you should contact your board certified rhinoplasty expert.
Rhinoplasty at 7 days
At 7 days post you are still very swollen. You need to give it a chance to heal. Best of luck.........
Post op swelling
Swelling after rhinoplasty can make it difficult to see your results this soon after surgery. It can take 6-12 months for swelling to resolve. Allow it some more time as you will likely see significant improvement. If you are still not happy,I suggest you discuss your concerns with your surgeon.

Too soon to judge your results
As you suspect, it is too soon to judge your results. Your body is healing and your face/nose is still swollen. It may take up to 6 months for things to fully subside. If you are still unhappy at that point, schedule an appointment to see your surgeon but, for now, be patient and kind to yourself. I know it's frustrating.
