Rhinoplasty concerns after splint removal
Dea fruitstarr, It is just to early to determine your post operative results and as the swelling dissipates and the nose settles changes will become apparent. If you are still unhappy after several months then discuss your concerns with your surgeon. In the interim explain to your surgeon your concerns so that he/she may help settle your worries during this recovery phase. Wishing you a quick recovery. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.

Ask a doctor
I can only concur with prior posts to relax and allow the healing process to run its course. If you see a significant deformity, contact your surgeon and advance your next visit to discuss with him. He is interested in your satisfaction as much as you are so always maintain a close line of communication.

Take a deep breath. Take a step back. You are only one week out of surgery. It takes 6 weeks to months for all the swelling to resolve to see what the final shape will be. You also have to remember that this is your new normal and you are not used to it. There is a lot of emotion that surrounds surgery especially when it is on the face. My recommendation is to take a step back and give things time to heal.
Thank you for your question but it is way too early to judge your results and in all likehood you tip will drop as it is now swollen. so try to be patient.
Early Post Rhinoplasty Tip Position
If you cast was just removed, you are much too early in the healing process to judge the results. In all likelihood, your tip is going to drop to a more pleasing position and shape. Make sure you stay in close communication with your surgeon as they he/she is the one who knows your nose best. Happy healing.
