Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Rhinoplasty is a procedure in plastic surgery that aims to shape the nose. In general, this procedure can be useful in correcting breathing complaints due to a less than ideal nose shape, congenital defects or due to accidents, impacts, or impacts for one reason or another.
This operation can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on your doctor's consideration of your physical condition and other medical considerations. Regarding your question, after rhinoplasty surgery, usually the patient will be put in a kind of wedge in the nose for a week. Apart from the nose area, swelling can also be found around the eyes. This condition will improve after two weeks.
After two weeks, it does not mean that the nose will return completely to its original state. There is still some minor swelling that isn't too obvious, so only you and your plastic surgeon are actually aware of it. This condition itself can last up to 6 months.
In your case, what you are describing is actually very susceptible to misunderstanding because we did not see it directly. Besides, the one who knows best whether you are still normal or not, is actually your doctor, because he or she does the action and sets the target. So in conclusion, if you look at the duration of the swelling, your condition is still normal. But specifically regarding the appearance of evenly or not and so on, only a plastic surgeon can answer it. Our advice is that if any post-operative results you doubt, ask your doctor directly.
