I had the Vivaer and had no noticeable swelling afterwards. Maybe I was breathing so much more easily that there was swelling but a net improvement and I didn't notice it.

For anyone who has it done, the pre-procedure instructions from my ENT included 2X/day nasal flushing with a Neil sinus rinse thing, to which was added the Neil powder (finely-ground salt and bicarbonate of soda if I recall correctly) and a prescribed iodine-based rinse. I did that for 14 days before and 10 after the procedure. I still occasionally use the Neil sinus rinse thing, without iodine, because I figure it flushes out allergens. And can't hurt. And covid is still around and, according to research in Sweden, the virus is weakened or killed by salt. But mostly because, well, it can't hurt.
