Hello, I had a rhinoplasty two weeks ago today and my upper lip is now higher and I can't close my lips. I had my columella shortened. I'm wondering if that's the cause and if my lips will go back to normal eventually? Thanks in advance!

There are a couple of possibilities this early in recovery. I would return to your surgeon for an exam.
