Hello. My name is Lucia. I am 40 years old and I am looking for answer from professional. I am very upset. I undergone rhinoplasty 25th of April in Turkey. Surgeon told me he couldn't do anything with the size of my nostrils. I would like your opinion about the result of the surgery. There is no different in the tip of my nose. The bit between the nostrils (columella) is still asymmetric and wry. One nostril is still double size of another one. Would you as a very qualified surgeon agreed with these result. I have last chceck up on Monday morning. And I am very upset and desperate. I don't want to isult that doctor but I just can't believe in 3 weeks I will see better results. If you can give me some help with your answer I would be very grateful. I know I made a mistake. I didn't go to Iran. Kind regards Lucia

Dear Lucia, nothing to be done right now, you have to keep calm and wait for 6 month to see the final result and then to reassess what's the specific deformities that you don't like and how to fix it

First, ask your doctor for full surgery protocol. Second, the final result will be achieved in 1 year. So dont worry!!!!

You have to wait for at least 3 months.
But i am not sure you will have what you want for your nostrils (they don’t work on them)

Dear Lucia, I hope you to get well soon.
You need to be patient to see the exact result for at least 3 to 6 months.
Warm regards

You can’t have any results after 3 weekend post operation! The rhinoplasty is the most slow in term as of recovery! It takes at list 2/3 months to start seeing the results, and up to 1 year to be 100% recovered. Trust me, I had a nose job done in the past.
You need to have patience and take care of your nose to have a proper recovery! Also, you can not blame the surgeon, because the results are not visible for you in 3 weeks post operation, that is simply impossible! Some patients are swelled for 4 weeks after the surgery, therefore, you can’t expect to be fully recovered in 3 weekes !

Dear Lucia, Patiente is the name of the game. Don't judge your nose right now, wait a couple of month and see how it changes. My nose was really swollen right after my rhinoplasty, and almost 2 month post surgery I noticed a massive change and every day it just keeps getting more and more define. Don't regret this yet, it's still early days, and maybe see how you feel about your nose after 6 months. If you're still not happy after the 6 months,then talk to your surgeon.

Hi Lucia, I wanted to say also don't regret not having gone to Iran, I myself also considered going to Iran for my rhinoplasty, but at the end of the day,it's about the surgeon and not the country as there are amazing and not so good plastic surgeons in every country. I did mine in Romania , and am super happy with the results, even tough many people were very sceptical and many told me it would be better to do it in Brazil or Thailand.

Hello Lucia,
The healing process in case of Rhinoplasty takes long time, sometimes up to 1-1,5 year. It is very difficult to judge the results right now as it's been only 13 days after the surgery. Please, bear in mind that the swelling is never symmetrical. One side of the nose might be more swollen than the other one, causing one nose hole bigger/smaller than the other one. The only advice is to be patient and wait at least few months to see any results :)

Hi. Had my nose job done in Prague cca 4 months ago. It still looks it has not healed totally so i have to wait little more. It is getting into the shape but as they said in other comments we need to be patient. 3 weeks is nothing. I am sure after that swelling and bruises go you will have your desired looking nose. I do not regret i traveled for my surgery because my surgeon was great. The best is when i have some questions i contact Forme clinic and they always give me advice.

Hi Jess13, thanks for helping Lucia with your story! You are right, the healing after rhinoplasty needs longer period of time than any other procedure. It would be perfect if you write your own review for Formé clinic, Jess!

Hey there,

The plasters are still on. So, the next best move is to go back to your plastic surgeon and discuss your concerns. You will have to wait for a minimum of 2-3 months for results of rhinoplasty to show up. Don't lose heart and I assure you that residual deformities if any are always correctable.

Hope this helps.

It’s possible to restore the symmetry of nostrils a minimize the tip of the nose a size of the nostrils and basic recovery time will be 10-14 days. Final result will take 12 months.
