My congenital short nose got worse after Rhinoplasty surgery. 4 months post op, shouldn't the nose look better at this stage?

The nose too short after rhinoplasty will not get longer.
Rhinoplasty for a short nose
- You are still in the healing process, and have a little more to go before considering doing anything else
- If the nose is getting shorter and the tip is rotating more and more as you heal, this can be concerning because the forces of healing may be pulling it back
- If it is getting better (even slightly) then you are on the right track
- Just look for the patterns to see if you are headed in the right direction, it sounds like your surgeon did the correct maneuvers
