Changes since the cast removal. Now: Tip appears large, and the nose is crooked!
By Sunshine454 on 11 Jan 2012
Hello, I just had rhinoplasty 3 weeks ago. I never liked my nose, i had a huge hump, it was crooked and big. For the first 2 weeks, my surgeon kept the splint on. I was so anxious to get it off and see the results.When he first removed the splint, I loved my new nose!!!!! It was straight, the hump was gone and the tip was small. I was so happy. However, over the last week..my nose has started changing. The tip has dropped a lot, and I am noticing that it seems to be crooked again to the same side as before. I have been touching my nose and I can feel that even the bones underneath seem bigger. I schedules an appointment with my surgeon, but it won't be until next Thursday. I am so anxious and I keep staring at my nose, as I feel that the tip seems to be dropping more. I don't understand how could my nose change so much in one week after the cast removal. Can someone please tell me if this is normal, will my nose change back to the original form after the cast was removed, or why this is happening. I am looking forward to your answers and hopefully getting some comfort so I can feel a little better. Thanks!!!
