How common is it for the tip of the nose to look too round after rhinoplasty? Is this swelling or does it require additional surgery to fix?
Well, that’s good question. The cut off mark for which all the swelling should have disappeared for a primary rhinoplasty is one year. For revisions, this can be more than one year. If after one year, the tip is still round and without definition, then we know it’s not swelling. If the patient wants the tip more defined, then a revision is necessary.
