I Had Nose Surgery 2 Weeks Ago and my Nose Holes Look Small is It Normal? (photo)

I had nose surgery 2 weeks ago and my nose looks point and it feels hard. My nose holes also look small. My doctor Said it's because it's swollen and that my nose holes will get bigger and the pointy part of my nose will go down. Is that true or is he lying.

     If you had alar base reduction, the nostrils will be smaller.  The tip is likely swollen, and the swelling should improve with time.
