Do Your Bones Swell During a Rhinoplasty?
In the next 6 months, I plan on getting a rhinoplasty. I have heard that after your procedure, it can take up to two years for the swelling to go down. Why does it take so long? Does the bone on the bridge of your nose swell? I know the cartilage at the tip of your nose takes the longest to heal, but why is that the case? Are there ways to speed up the healing process?
