Septoplasty six weeks ago, and the tip is still very crooked and swollen. It looks worse. Is it normal to still have swelling?

Septoplasty for Crooked Nose
While the underlying deviated septum may contribute to a crooked external appearance of the nose, additional considerations need to be given to the underlying anatomy. Typically swelling can take some time before resolving after a rhinoplasty; however, for a septoplasty, the time period is shorter. Bear in mind every patient is different. There may be another reason why your nose is swollen, so I encourage you to find a facial plastic surgeon who can examine and address your nose.
