Bulbous nose reduction+tip plasty 6 weeks ago, indentation visible on the bridge where the tip begins. Will it go away? (Photos)

Nothing was done to my bridge. Splint was removed 5 weeks ago &my doctor had pointed out the indentation which was hardly visible, due to the swelling of the tip and explained with time and massage the tip will smoothen out& the indentation will disappear. @ 6 weeks today. The indentation on my bridge where the tip begins seems to be more visible and I am not convinced it will go away. Can any doctor confirm this or advise what is the best option for me to do as of now as I'm very upset

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.
