Why is the Tip of my Nose So Swollen After Septoplasty?

I broke my nose in Aug, in Sept., I had a septoplasty, submucosal turbinectomy & polyps removed. Everything I look up says that a Rhinoplasty takes a year or more to heal, but I didn't have a rhinoplasty.

Swelling at 1 year after Septoplasty


If you had your procedure last August then you should not have any swelling at this point. You may want to ask your doctor what he thinks.
