Too Flat and Short Nose After Rhinoplasty (photo)
My cast has come off and I'm now on day 10 after surgery. I've added some pictures as I'm very unhappy with my results. I now have a more flat and wider nose, which totally changes my face. I just wanted my tip reduced from the bottom, but was happy with the rest of my nose.
The doctor advised that he would have to do a full rhinoplasty to file the dorsum, even though I just wanted my tip done. I felt it was just my tip end (the bit the came down slightly) that needed reducing. I'm very unhappy and embarrassed to return to work in 3 days time. My nurse keeps saying I will get used to it, and it's probably just swelling.
If it is swelling, is there anything I can do to help the process along? Will it become sharper/narrower like it was before? Will my nostrils look smaller, as they are way too exposed (something I expressed I didn't want)? Will my larger nostril also come in line with the other? I have so many events/functions/weddings to go to in the next few months and I'm now upset and don't think I'll be able to go.
