I’m 2 wks post rhino: small hump red, sutures to elev and narrow tip and tip cartilage trim(was told there’s enough left for tip support). It was a revision following a cephalic trim 2yrs ago which made no change. Post 1st surgery, 90% of swelling subsided after 10 days. Now, I like my profile and front but am worried that the tip will become even smaller later. Since it’s a revision, I know more swelling should be expected.From your experience, should I expect the tip to be even narrower later?

2 week swelling
Looks like a good result on the way.
It's early to make final pronouncement but where your relative to the operation predicts a good outcome.

This early after rhinoplasty, it is premature to be concerned about the final result.
