I had open rhinoplasty surgery on 8/29/08. Today my splint came off. My nose is straight but still appears to be the same size. I had a wonderful surgeon - no problem there! Will the size of my nose get smaller once the swelling subsides? Day one of these most important questions. Thanks for all that you and your site does for patients with complicated questions!
Rhinoplasty swelling takes months to resolve
Thanks for your question and your update to your progress. Rhinoplasty can take months to a year for the swelling to resolve. The tip is usually the slowest to find its final shape. This seems consistent with your post-op course. To answer your last question, most patients do not need revision Rhinoplasty but in any case, I would wait at least one year before considering any additional surgery. I hope this helps!
