I expected and addressed a little higher nose (middle) without any change on the upper part of nose while the tip of nose refined. I guess it takes the fundamental anatomy of the nasal tip including the alar cartilage strength and contour, as well as the investing skin. It takes open surgery and two alar cartilage putting together to be pointed with middle part of nose raised with ear cartilage. Looks like only ear cartilage was added to my nose tip still blunt, right?
Producing a Predictable Eventual Outcome in the Refinement of Nasal Tip Surgery Takes Reconstruction of the Fundamental Anatomy?

I do not like the redness that I see on your nasal tip. A close follow-up with your surgeon is important for you at this time.

Refinement of Nasal Tip Following Rhinoplasty
Your tip can be improved and refined. I am concerned that the cartilage placedn in your tip is putting pressure on the skin where it is elevated and red. This could eventually compromise the skin and cause problems with skin circulation.
Revision Rhinoplasty Is Needed
Based on the photos you have posted, a corrective rhinoplasty is beneficial.
However, I cannot provide you with a definitive procedure description without physical examination and full facial photos.
That being said please remember that commendable results require an exceptionally skilled surgeon to perform the surgery and settling for anything less than that increases the chances of undesirable results.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your inquiry.
The best of luck to you.
