Did my surgeon over trim my nose cartilage ??? ( Male Septo-rhinoplasty ) - (photo)

i have had a septo-rhinoplasty 3 months ago ( closed approach ) , and i think my tip is now feminine because the tip is so small ! what do you think doctors ? what are my possibilities ? is it ok or should i consider grafts so it can look manly again ?

Does not seem over resected

Your nasal tip doesn't appear feminine in these photos. I think your nasal tip skin is thick and that can be limiting. However I'm not sure any over resection has occurred. Typically you would have more significant notching.  I wouldn't consider revision surgery for another 6-9 month until all swelling has really come down 

Good luck!

Nasal tip question

Your nasal skin looks relatively thick so it is almost impossible to judge if the lower lateral cartilage was over resected. Give it another 3 months before you start to judge the final result.;

Depending on your examination, volume may be replaced, non-surgically, after rhinoplasty surgery.

If you feel that your tip is too narrow after surgery, a well-performed non-surgical rhinoplasty may be considered to add volume to your nose. In our practice, we prefer to use silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results.

Hope this helps you.
