I just did my rhinoplasty 3 weeks ago and I'm so scared about this assymetry. Is it normal and just swelling? Or will it stay like this? One of my nostrils is much higher than the other. There's also a dent in my nostril and one side is bigger than the other. Will this get better?
Hi, Vicky. I didn’t see before pictures and don’t know what your surgeon has done therefore it is really hard do judge. I think 3 weeks is not enough time for swelling to go down. For my patiets I wait 10 to 12 months to see final result and only then we discuss if correction is needed.
The complains you are having is very normal for someone that just underwent surgery a few weeks ago. Try to stay positive and be patient because your mood plays a big role in your recovery period. If you think you are having swellingness in an extreme way then I would suggest you to get in contact with your surgeon.
