3 Days After Pushing Up Columella Surgery, Nose Looks the Same. When Will I See My Final Result?

Hi. I bit the bullet and got a small revision, pushing up a hanging columella. The surgeon said he pushed it up about 2.5-3 mm. I only needed tape on my nose afterward for this minor surgery. It's the 3rd day so the tape was removed. I showed my boyfriend and he said it looks exactly the same. I know it's been only 3 days, however I don't look or feel swollen that much. how long should it take before I will kinda know the expected results.It's not gonna change much from this point yes?

Evaluating Result of Columellar Lifting 3 Days after Surgery

It is impossible for anyone, patient or surgeon, to evaluate the results of any nasal surgery 3 days post-op. However, I suggest you consult with your surgeon.

In my experience, you should see the results immediately from an isolated Columellar tuck.  The nasal tip should look less rotated from the front and profile.
