Do people with thick nasal skin have swelling in the nasal tip longer? I’m 6 months post-op and my nasal tip seems very swollen and I’m wondering if I’ll need a revision. I’m Hispanic and I’ve been told I have thick nasal skin.
Patients with thick nasal skin can take longer for the tip swelling to resolve. It can take a year or longer! For instance, I recently saw a patient with thick nasal skin in my office 1 year after surgery. She is thrilled with her result, but she told me it took 8 months until the swelling really went away.
