I had a deviated septum and a small bump on the side of my nose that I wanted to get rid of. It was as if the cartilage was somewhat detached and I had more of a round nose at the tip but it was very long and pointy. I told the surgeon that I wanted to simply fix the deviated septum and then maybe fix the hump but he later explained what he had done and said the tip would be more pointy and that he reduced the cartilage. I still have the cast on but my nostrils look so wide now and I think it maybe because he didn't take into account the size of the nostrils after reducing the cartilage. I really liked my nose before and I only wanted to breathe better and fix the bump.i didn't want to change the shape. Are the nostrils like this because of swelling? I'm on my day 4 after the operation

Stiffness of nose
Hi I am about week 2 and a half weeks post surgery and my nose feels very stiff. It feels like a rock and I dont know if this is normal. I read about the swelling but i can literally feel my cartilage stick out on both lateral sides and the tip is hard. My surgeon changed the tip of my nose so it wouldn't have a round tip and gave it a pointy tip. However, now I found that the nose is start to look round and it has a rather strange look. I will post up pictures. Any suggestions?
