Sinus infection after Rhinoplasty
I had Rhinoplasty a month ago. My swelling had come down. But, three weeks later, the swelling has returned and is not reducing. I have inner nasal swelling as well. It could be Sinus infection. I am worried if the swelling will ever go down and how long will it take for that to happen. Please help if this is normal?

Hi, Swelling after Rhinoplsty surgery is quiet a common thing. Its degree depends on whether or not osteotomies were done to correct the bony framework was done. Almost about 60% to 70℅ of the swelling reduce by 3 to 4 weeks time. However the remaining remodeling takes about 3 to 5 months approx depending upon the surgery done. You can do gentle massage with thumb and finger along with alternate hot and cold packs to recover from the swelling fast. If you are still worried you can book an online consultation. Thanks.
