21yo female, nose makes me look 27, why do I look too old? (Photo)

Hi, I was told its impossible to permanently shorten a nose by making it more upturned. I was also told its large from the front due to thick skin, not cartilage. I just want to look teen (13-22 or so) because I'm only 21, and I missed out on a lot. (BTW the bandaging and swelling is from having congenitally dark eyebags treated, they're not exactly relevant but I figured other people with premature aging under their eyes in their teens to early twenties seem also to have large noses.)

Too old?

From the look of the compression garment you have recently had some procedures.  It is easy to second guess your choices when you are recovering from surgery. I recommend you discuss your concerns with your surgeon who knows your case well.  If you don't have confidence in their answer, a second opinion may be a good way to go. Good luck.
