Rhinoplasty Concerns... - Walnut Creek, CA

So just like everyone else, I was never much of a fan of my nose. I never noticed it much until I got into jr. high and always thought I was pretty, but that my nose kinda killed it for the rest of my face (lol). Thankfully, I didn't go through much teasing but I have always been very self-aware and conscious of it. Getting a rhinoplasty was always in the back of my mind but it wasn't until this summer I decided I'd finally do one. After consulting with some doctors I decided to go ahead and book with a surgeon in walnut creek that I was referred to and read excellent reviews on. We discussed what I wanted during the consult and he seemed to have the same vision for my nose that I did, so I was confident and excited for my new nose. So fast forward...

I had my surgery on Friday so it's currently day 4. Thankfully haven't had much swelling or bruising, even though I was told yesterday and today would be the worst days. What I am concerned about, however is that my tip looks a little pointy and definitely upturned :( I know thats from swelling but it's really scaring me. I also have a wedding to go to on the 30th so I'm worried if I will be able to make it without people noticing a huge difference in my face. Also, the procedure was an open procedure and I knew that I would have a scar on my columella, however I also have stitches on my nostrils and I haven't seen anyone post that before so I'm wondering what happened there. My surgeon is out of town for 3 months so I can't ask him anything either -_-. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated :). I have been debating on whether or not to make an account but since I've been on this website all day everyday for the past 2 weeks I thought why not...

So next Tuesday (day 11) is when I get my cast off & I have to go to school right after. I will be wearing a hat but I was wondering if I could put sunscreen &/or make on my nose?
