I had Rhinoplasty surgery several days ago. When I saw my nose at the mirror recently, I noticed, that the tip of my nose is lifted high, which does not look natural. The doctor told me that it's going to return into a more natural form after a while. Will it really change and go down? If so, when can I expect it to happen?
Time is your friend after rhinoplasty
Swelling at this stage in your post-operative progress is likely masking your final result. At day 2 and 3 your swelling may be at a peak. Time will help. In my practice we also recommend head elevation for the first week. Splinting and taping can also help keep swelling and edema to a minimum. Most patients should see significant reduction in swelling and edema at 3-4 weeks with the final shape being more apparent at about 6 weeks however there can be residual edema for 6 months. Try to be patient. Talk to your plastic surgeon about your post-op course. Good luck!
