Thank you for your question.
Well, the biggest issue that you mentioned is about your doctor not being accessible. If you have questions, or more importantly a potential post-surgical issue, your doctor should be able to be contacted to discuss what may be going on. I would continue to try and contact their office.
Also, in all likelihood, you did not do anything to affect the surgical outcome. Still, I would see your surgeon for an evaluation. If you really can't contact your surgeon, I recommend seeing somebody else.

Trauma post op
First question to ask is why your doctor is not accessible ?
If you have some trauma to your nose early post op it will swell quite a bit -swelling above the tip can create an optical illusion of your tip being lower until the swelling goes -see your surgeon or their nurse
