Drooping Tip and Notched Nostrils After Rhinoplasty

Unfortunately the options for those seeking ethnic rhinoplasty in the uk (at least in the london area) is very limited. Therefore, the ethnic patient must 'make do' with the available choice of surgeons, regardless of their faults. I had rhinoplasty to reduce the alar bases and to provide definition to the tip.
It has only been 15 days post op and swelling has not yet subsided. I sought to add definition to the tip and to reduce my alar bases. However, its concerning that my tip now droops and my right nostril has an ugly notch. My tip was rounded before but it was certainly not droopy. Has this been noted before in cases where the nose has turned out alright after the long 12-18 month waiting period? or am i correct in thinking that i require secondary surgery?
It is early at this stage, my final results are unknown. but at the moment i am unhappy.
