After a nose job (rhinoplasty), it is the usual to apply a splint on the nose for one week give or take a day. At the end of that week, most facial and perioccular swelling resolves. The final outcome of the rhinoplasty results can take up to 12-18 months.
Good luck to you!

Scaring after surgery can be problematic after any surgery, especially if the patient is prone for it. During an office exam, these would be my questions to you: how long ago was your surgery? What, if any, treatment has been done? Have you seen your surgeon? Can you show me other scars on your body? Based on your answers, we would formulate a treatment course. If you are early on after surgery, various products are on the market, usually silicone-based, that help with redness and scar hypertrophy. It can be injected, lasered, or, if the scar is mature (12 months or more), it can be surgically revised. Given that the skin stretched, there is no vertical tension (upward pull) on the new suture line, so chances are it would heal much better. Please remember that you should see your surgeon first.
