Is This Swelling? 4 Months Post Rhinoplasty (photo)

Hi 4 months ago I underwent a primary rhinoplasty. I am delighted with the profile view but the 3/4 view in the last 6 weeks or so has gotten progressively worse. It appears from this view I have a slight convexity because above the tip on one side it is quite a lot fatter. Shall I go see my surgeon and ask about kenalog injections? Thanks

At 4 months, The type asymmetry you describe can be treated with Kenalog injections, but the tip should be palpated and the the high spot can be reduced with a steroid injection.

Go see your surgeon
