Hi, I had Rhino-Septoplasty 35 days ago and I told my doctor I want my nose straight. He shaved my bone. After cast removal my nose was straight but then my tip dropped. From what you see in the pictures: -Do I have a droopy tip? a pollybeak deformity? a supratip swelling? -Will the tip go up to have a straighter nose? -Shall i expect the supratip to shrink more than the tip to have a straighter nose? I know it needs time but based on your experience how would you analyse my nose tip? Thanks!

Droopy Tip After Rhinoplasty
Based on your current post and the ones you have posted before, I believe that no one can predict your surgery's final results especially since you are at about a month after your surgery.
You will need to be a little more patient and follow your surgeon's instructions religiously while protecting your nose from any possible nasal trauma.
Usually, the end results of a rhinoplasty are established at about 12 months after the procedure.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you.

Do I have a dropped tip
It is only 35 days. If your picture was 1 year I"D say you have a dropped tip or a pollybeak (same thing)...Right now I'd say you have a swolen nose post surgery waiting for the swelling to subside.. Be patient and stay off the internet nose lines.
