Droopy tip after rhinoplasty - too much cartilage removed?

I had a primary rhinoplasty a little over two weeks ago. I now seem to have a droopy tip and it makes my lose appear very long - much longer than it was before surgery. A sliver of cartilage was removed from the tip of my nose.He said I had very weak cartiage as well. I am now being told the only thing I can do is wait 12-18 months for a revision which he said would be expensive. Is there anyway that it might tip up somewhat once the swelling goes down?

Here are what some doctors have to say about tip drooping. Sounds like it may subside somewhat after the initial swelling has done down, but I don't know about it tipping back up.

It's been some time now since you posted this concern. Has it resolved at all?
