I have done an tip rhinoplasty, to hide a mid-line shadow in my nose tip,I didnn't want any change in my nose. My surgeon did only an inter-domal suture, and needed to approximate almost 4 mm width. In the lateral view the nose tip looks protruded as a whole compared to the upper osseous part of the nose.It looks like that the whole cartilaginous part is moved anteriorly and slightly superiorly, with the columellar part also moved a little inferiorly. It's 5 months post-op, what's your advice?

Healing after rhinoplasty continues for 1-2 years.
Your nose will continue to change as it heals for 1-2 years (and sometimes even longer). Unless there is something clearly amiss from your initial surgery, 5 months is a little premature to jump into a revision surgery. Follow up with your surgeon, discuss your concerns with her/him, and give your nose time to reach its final appearance.
