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. Kind regards, Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Noses take time
As time passes you will be more able to judge your nose. Go talk with your surgeon and see what he says. You definitely have some tip and nostril asymmetry which may or may not improve with time. The asymmetry you have will possibly need surgery but not till you are one year out. The correction should be easy to do. My Best, Dr Commons
It is always difficult to assess results form non standard photos, but I can say that at 3 months, you cannot assess the final reslut. It is too early. From the photos provided, I do not see any glaring deformity that I would rush back to correct. Don't worry. You are not alone. It is very common for patients to be apprehensive abouot thier result at 2-3 months. Even after being told that the final result may take a year, patients forget and can't help but find faults after a few months. Be patient. Try to listen to your surgeon and discuss your concerns. Good luck
