Nose looks like a potato 2.5 months post-op + photos

Catalin  |  visitor  |  Bucharest
I had a rhinosteptoplasty 2.5 months ago. I'm very pleased with my profile results since day 1. The problem is my nose looks 2x times bigger in front view, than it looked before. I'm wearing bandages to reduce the swelling since I had the surgery. My upper lip feels still swollen and my whole nose looks like a potato and undefined. Is there any chance the swelling could reduce to the expected photo attached? I have a very very thick skin and almost all my bones inside the nose have been fractured and rearranged.

Hi Catalin, Rhinoplasty is quite an extensive procedure and swelling may take up to a year to go away. So now it's quite early days- the swelling distorts the view, hence the nose looking bigger. We hope you healing will go smoothly and have a nice day :)

Hi Catalin, you had a conventional rhinoplasty, and if bones have been fractured and re-arranged, it is going to take a long time for swelling to subside - year/s. so, you need to be patient. You can meanwhile use anti-inflammatory enzyme preparations to reduce the swelling. However, soft tissue swelling can take months and bony swelling can take year/s to go away completely.
We do a NO-SWELLING RHINOPLASTY in large number of our cases. It is done in local anesthesia, and swelling is either very minor or non-existent. Final results are permanent and are seen in 2-3 weeks. There is no bleeding, no swelling and no bandages. It is walk in walk out surgery.
