I had rhinoplasty 6 weeks ago and I’ve been terribly congested ever since. Is this just due to the swelling and will it eventually go away? When will I be able to breathe more easily?
Without seeing you and examining you I cannot tell why you are congested. You may have swelling or crusts or scabs or dry blood clots in your nose. You may have a deviated septum or large turbinates or internal valve collapse or narrowing or scar tissue. There are lots of reasons for congestion. I have even heard of some doctors forgetting to remove packing sponges from the nose after surgery! You need to see your doctor and be examined. If its normal swelling then it should get better with time. Rinsing your nose with saline salt water should also help after rhinoplasty.
