Selling after rhinoplasty
It is common for the nose to look a bit turned up after surgery. This typically goes down as the swelling resolves. There is no way to make any judgments on the results at 7 days.
Nostril Shape Can Temporarily Change
Thanks for your question. It's entirely possible that the change in the size and shape of your nostrils is temporary. Swelling can be unpredictable, and we do see this sometimes in the early phases of recovery. At any rate, it's far too early to worry. Give your nose some time to heal. Over the next few weeks and months, your swelling will reduce significantly, and you'll have a better idea of what your permanent results will look like. Good luck during your recuperation.
The nostril might be pulled up due to the taping of the nose and often come down with time. They can appear thicker due to swelling.
Nostril size after rhinoplasty
Thank you for your question. Occasionally, the nostrils will appear larger after rhinoplasty because of persistent swelling and scar contracture. Please consult your surgeon because he/she knows exactly the procedure performed during your surgery. In some of my patients I have given Restylane injections until the swelling subsided enough to decrease the nostril show. This must be done with extreme caution. Occasionally, a small incision inside the nose can completely correct this deformity. You are at seven months and maybe a candidate. Patients must wait at least six months before undergoing any revision rhinoplasty procedures. 95% of my patients completely improved with observation only and performing no procedures. I hope this information is helpful to you. Best of luck in your recovery !
