I just had a nose job, and before my nose had a long appearance, which i liked because it suited my face, but the tip was turned down, which i disliked. I also had a bump at the bridge of my nose.
So my plastic surgeon, in order to turn the tip of my nose up, cut (or loosened?) the cord in the center of the inside of the upper lip (not sure what it's called). He also had to break my nose in order to remove the bump. Now it's been a month and my nose looks rather short and I was wondering if that was a result of the swelling, and if it would eventually have the longer, slender appearance it did before.
I desired rhinoplasty because my nose had a bump and the tip was turned down, which made me feel self-conscious. I disliked the side view of my nose, but liked the frontal view because my nose had a long, slender look which suited my face.
Pros- The bump on the nose is gone, the bridge is still rather swollen.
The tip is not turned down anymore.
cons - The tip looks turned up a little much
My nose looks shorter, which doesn't suit my face.
