Nose Surgery and My Tip is Upturned
Doctor Answers (2)
Following rhinoplasty the tip of the nose of often much higher than the eventual angle
This is a common worry of many of my patients following rhinoplasty. An upturned tip is the most evident when they look at their nose the day after surgery. The stitches and tape often holds the tip much higher than the eventual position. The tip will continue dropping for weeks to months after the tape and cast are removed. So, don't worry if your tip is too high for many months following rhinoplasty.
