Are there any exercises I can do at home to remedy a dorsal hump that is still visible 3 weeks after septorhinoplasty? Can it still go away in a yr.

However, if related to post surgical swelling, then allowing yourself time to heal is the best option. It takes several months to a year for the final results of your septorhinoplasty to be fully appreciated. There are non surgical options such as silicone which can soften subtle deformities. ...Read more
