sourisso is on a distinguished road



Default Crooked nose - uneven swelling or ?

Hi there,

im attaching pictures, could someone please give an opinion...

im 11 days post septorhinoplasty, had a deviated septum corrected and removal of a hump, classic... its kinda hard for me to figure whether the crooked appearance of my nose
is due to uneven swelling, due to the fact that my surgeon couldnt straighten totally my nose (it didnt look very crooked externally) or if something is wrong.
last picture shows before.

Your before and after pics mirror a great deal of the same crookedness. Do you have before and after profile pics? Usually surgeons will tell you to wait until the swelling goes down, either due to their own error(s) or due to the sheer fact that swelling obviously makes valid post-op evaluations difficult to arrive upon.

Do you sleep on your back or side?

Were you told to tape your nose?

It seems like the crooked structure from the pre-op photos mimicks the post-op photos, which concerns me, despite the possibility of swelling. I questioned the taping, because if you tape it too tight you could widen the bridge.

yes well honestly i think a big part of the swelling is gone on the upper part of my nose at least and when i touch the bridge on my right side (so, left on the pic) it doesnt feel very normal. at the point where the crooked starts, it feels very thin and going in like there was a hit on that part. while the other side is normal. it wasnt like that few days ago, or maybe it was but it was covered by swelling so i couldnt feel it. i dont know, if i touch gently my nose, it just doesnt feel right.. its supposed to be in place already no ?

Unfortunately the right side nasal deviation has not been corrected by the surgery. Although the open approach is a good way to address the deformity the distal one terce of the nose continue presenting the preoperative deviation.
It is secondary that the nasal septum is not in the midline. The nose will need revision surgery.

jtrinidad, sounds like you have a medical background in rhinoplasty?
