Will my tip drop by itself to an extent? Is there anything that should be done now to help? (Photo)

Upturned tip due to swelling
What you are experiencing is totally normal for 9 days post op. Your nose is swollen and this particularly affects the tip. For now, be patient and kind to yourself as your body continues to heal. If, at 6 months post op, you still don't like the tip then schedule an appointment to discuss with your surgeon.
Thank you for your question. At 9 days out from surgery, it is very common to have the tip be upturned more than normal. This is simply because of swelling, and should settle as you continue to heal. Swelling in the nose really takes anywhere from 6 months to 1 year to resolve. As you have already said, be sure to continue and let your surgeon know about your concerns.
I hope that this helps!

Your nose will change over the next year. I am glad to hear that you reached out to the doctor, to share your concerns.
