I'm 8 months post open revision rhinoplasty, I'm really worried. I love the shape of my nose so far and I really don't want it to get smaller. I don't want my nose to end up being like the nose of girls. Please give me your opinion.

Post Revision Rhinoplasty
In general, the final result of a rhinoplasty procedure is typically achieved at one year. You can continue to see refinement of your result even past this time, however people are generally at their final result within a year.
Yes it will get more refined and for getting better results you can give it another 4 months. So it will be alright.
Swelling after Rhinoplasty
The nose usually doesn't change dramatically after one year, but subtle forces of healing may continue for several years after that, reflected by changes in your skin. If you're happy at eight months, this is a good sign. I follow my patients for one year after surgery free of charge to ensure they heal correctly and we are both satisfied.
