Very few patients have 6 rhinoplasties.The more youhave the more it swells and for a longer period.Change yor mindset . Remember the prayer of desiderata.

I would suggest making a post operative appointment with your surgeon and discuss your concerns. With six revision surgeries you are bound to have swelling at this point of your recovery. How much surgery and what technique was used in your surgery is hard to determine via Internet without a operative report and photographs. Hopefully a proper appointment and some questions answered will ease your mind. Best regards!
