Rhinoplasty- Tip

It looks like you have a very good result!  I usually tell patients that their nose will continue to change for 9-12 after surgery.  It is not surprising that your tip still feels a bit long, it is likely due to residual swelling.  Open procedures (scar beneath the nose) tend to have longer periods of tip swelling than closed procedures (all scars on the inside of the nose)

Nose job 1 month ago

Thank you for the question. It is too early to determine the outcome of your nose surgery. It usually takes 8-10 months before the swelling subsides completely. Over the nest few months with will notice changes to your nose as the swelling starts to go down. During that time you need to keep close contact with your plastic surgeon and address all your concerns directly with him/ her. Best wishes

Tip too long

Too early to tell because of swelling.  Also by looking at you pre-surgical pictures I would be able to try to guess how much of the tip will come down.  Good luck

ALWAYS best to post the before photos! But very early in healing, allow at least 6 months of healing.

Rhinopalsty at one month

At one month your nose is still very swollen from the rhinoplasty. In all likelihood the tip will come down a bit.
