Its now several weeks since my rhinoplasty. When I first had the cast removed, I was very pleased with the result. But since then the swelling seems to have actually increased. Is this normal?
Don’t worry you’ll get what you saw originally when the cast was removed. The cast or splint applies compression to the nose and it is not uncommon that after removal without compression the nose swells more. eventually this will subside. Some patients do better by applying paper tape to the nose at night to give it some compression to speed the process. Ask your doctor if that is smoething he or she recommends.
