WHEN CAN I EXPECT THE SWELLING TO GO AWAY?
I had tip work done on my nose and it was only supposed to be the tip that was worked on. However, my entire nose looks swollen and awful. Is it normal for the whole nose to be swollen even though only a portion of it was actually worked on? When can I expect the swelling to go away?
Even though you only had a tip rhinoplasty in Philadelphia, the skin on the entire nose was probably lifted up. This causes the entire nose to swell. In my experience, most of the swelling goes away in the first month or so and the rest of the swelling goes away over the next 11 or so months. Even though the nose is swollen after surgery, the nose should have a better shape and typically looks better even immediately after the cast is removed
