Drooping tip 11 days post rhinoplasty
Certainly the nasal dorsal profile looks great. You're right that the tip is somewhat "droopy" compared to the preoperative altered image. There is much healing to take place however.Specifically with scar contracture as part of the normal healing process you may find that the tip may rotate upwards somewhat. You really have to wait a year before judging the final results. All the best.
