My Nose Looks Longer then Before After Surgery. Is This Normal?

Rhinoplasty bump removal
- It takes about 6 months for a primary (first time) rhinoplasty to fully heal
- Taking down a bump can make the nose look long, but lifting the tip will shorten the nose
- My feeling is that you are still early in the post op period and I would give it time to heal
Rhinoplasty and nasal appearance
Sometimes in taking down the nasal bump, the nose can appear to look longer. In addition, the tip can look longer when tip defining sutures are placed and with the early post-op swelling. Give it time to heal.
Nose longer after surgery
It is very difficult to answer your question without knowing when your surgery was or seeing more pictures – you should consider posting more images showing your areas of concern
