I had open rhinoplasty 5 months ago and my tip is still huge feels bigger than before. I've had two steroid shots yet really scared my nose will not change much. Please help! My doctor said it's still early stages and will continue to change. I don't want to go through this again. Btw he is double board certified.

Thanks for sharing your experience on RealSelf! I truly hope the swelling goes down soon so you can enjoy your results. Do you have any "before" photos you could post so we can see the difference?

I noticed changes with my friends nose every time I saw her for the first 2 years after her rhinoplasty. Each time it looked more defined and smaller. Its been 4 years since her rhinoplasty. I do notice when looking up close her nostrils are slightly uneven and I can see a small scar but honestly she looks gorgeous. Most importantly she loves her results. Hang in there. Try to be patient. Try decreasing the amount of salt intake. Also take good care of yourself. Think positive:)
