Increased nostril show and tip rotation after my Rhinoplasty. I have now provided some photos. As you can see my nostrils are now an awful triangular shape with a pointed shape at the top where the cartlidge has been sutured. Is there anything which can be done to turn them back to a more rounded shape like they were before my procedure? I really cannot see how the shape will improve once the swelling has gone down. I am nearly 3 weeks post op.

I am considered an expert on nostril shape and I would do nothing for 3 months or longer. The only accurate determination you can make about your nostrils now is that they will change.
To soon post Rhinoplasty to see final result
