12 days post rhinoplasty - Swelling is expected
Swelling after rhinoplasty is expected and can camouflage the underlying fine structural work performed by your surgeon to reshape the nose. Your photos show the contours expected at 12 days. More details of your new nasal contour will be visible within 6 weeks, however, the magnitude and duration of swelling after rhinoplasty varies with skin thickness, magnitude of dissection, and whether implants/grafts were used. Your final "look" might not be apparent for a year.
The tip and the front side after rhinoplasty
As you know, it takes months for the swelling of the nose to settle, in particular the tip. From the limited views you have provided, it looks like you nose is more harmonious and has better proportions. your hanging tip and columella are well corrected and your transition from bone to cartilage looks natural.
Be patient for the next 6 weeks. It will settle. I suspect it will not be as narrow as your preop tip but I think it will look better on your face with better proportions. Congratulations on having had your surgery !!!
