Nasal irregularity during the healing process
1 month post op and my nose looks upturned.
Thank you for your questions, 1 month post op this is normal for your nose to look this way because it is still very swollen and you will 3months to 6 months for the nose to look natural and you will then start to see the results.

Upturned nose one month after a rhinoplasty
I warn all my patients undergoing a rhinoplasty whether it is a primary or revision, that their nose will look upturned and somewhat "piggy" for at least two weeks after the surgery. The nose will continue to settle for a few months after. At this stage, seek reassurance from your plastic surgeon and perhaps even have him perform a Kenalog or dilute steroid injection above the tip to take away some of the postoperative swelling which can, in and of itself, give the appearance of an overly upturned nose. No revisional surgery should be contemplated for at least six months after the original surgery.
