I Look Really Strange Two Months After Rhinoplasty

Hello, I am 2 months after rhinoplasty and do not...

Hello, I am 2 months after rhinoplasty and do not feel good.

Before rhinoplasty I had little bit larger nose with a little hump under tip(place where supratip is I bet). So i wanted minimal changes.

So a doctor shortened a nose by 2-3mm, cut off the hump, and also he said that he had to narrow nose little bit and cut it more down. (do not know why???)

However my profile seems now really nice and better then before, i do not like semi-profile and front view. Before rhinoplasty i think i was really attractive guy and nose from semi profile and front view seems normal and fit to my face.

After rhinoplasty, I think the nose seems to small and narrow for my face. The result is that I Look really strange and a lot of people who didn´t see me for some time agree that. I mean my eyes looks now different and whole expression looks different.

But the thing is, when i do massage of the nose how my doctor said I look almost same like before rhinoplasty which I really like and nose does fit my face more. If i am right a nose swells after massages right? Paradox is that I like it when it swells after massages because without them the nose seems so thin and small. I do not really know why i look so different? I mean my countenance of my face seems really strange. I look like something between pig, monkey and Grinch. No kidding. The next interesting thing is that if I cover a part of my nose near the area where the hump was cutten I look exactly like me. Why is that? is it because there is some large swelling which totally change my look? Is it possible?

But on the other hand i have to admit, that I think that everyday I m looking better and better and look more like before surgery. Do you think that i will continue and getting better or I wont never look as good as i was before surgery.

I mean all i wanted was a subtle change but no it seems to much.

Doctor said that i have to wait, to nose to sit down etc... but you know its two months, which i think is very long time. And the worst thing that i am afraid is that how swelling goes away nose will be getting smaller and smaller and that is exactly what i dont want.

Thank you very much for answers and advices.

Just had a septo/rhinoplasty done on the 11th of Aug and it has been a lil over 2 weeks and I still think I look like the grinch or a pig. My nose is upturned and very swollen. I'm trying to be patient and hoping once the swelling subsides I will start to look normal and like my new nose. Friends and family want to see my nose but I am too embarassed to show my face now. I hope I don't regret my decision.

How are you now after 10 months? Was it swelling or will you need a revision? Or was it panic? I also feel like I look like a character from Dr. Seuss or like a mammal!

Hi I just wanted to tell you that I had rhinoplasty about 7 months ago. The first 3-4 months were hell, I looked strange and like someone else. At 7 months I look more like my old self but because my bridge was narrowed my eyes now appear smaller and I look slightly different. When you alter the bridge it changes everything.

Hey! I have not had plastic surgery before, but I know of people who have and sometimes the tip does start to droop after like a year or 2 and some people get touch ups on their plastic surgery. If you don't like your surgery u can always go to another doctor who specializes in re-doing surgeries and they can make it bigger again. The doctor I am considering going to does this too, his name is Dr. Baker: http://www.stephenbakermd.com/dr_stephen_baker_patient_testimonials.cfm But there are a lot of plastic surgeons who can do revisions. I would wait at least a year though.
