See plastic surgeon: Most of the swelling is down by a year. This might be an anatomic issue that needs more surgery or scar tissue that can be addressed with a steroid injection. See your plastic surgeon.

This is unusual: Your swelling should be resolved by one year. I would return to your surgeon and ask them for advice.

See your surgeon: Stay healthy and hydrated, avoid smoking, and see your surgeon if you are still experiencing swelling. They can check for a cause or sometimes use medications to help resolve things.

A 34-year-old female asked:

Can nose be still swollen after 1 year after rhinoplasty ?

Up to a year: Swelling can last up to a year after having a rhinoplasty but rarely longer than that. That is why that you won't realize your actual results until about 12 months after surgery once the swelling has resolved.
