I can still smile and my upper lip is not stiff after rhinoplasty?

Why is my upper lip not stiff like other rhinoplasty patients? I had a lot of tip work done under local anesethia and for some reason, I can still move my upper lip and smile like normal.

Its difficult to answer this question. We need to know when you had the surgery, how long after the surgery? If you provide that info, it will be easier to help.
