I had a tip debulking & agreed minutes before surgery to raise my tip, not knowing how it would look front. I now deeply regret this overcorrection. Doctor used Medpor (& own cartilage) w/out explaining it & did not warn me it would be 3 months+ before the swelling settled. 1 month post-op & self-conscious about the way my tip swells/is rigid in the morning, after I lie down for a nap, & all but for an hour or so in the evening. I don't drink or smoke. He counseled against steroid injections.
