What Should Expect Regarding my Tip Post Rhinoplasty? (photo)

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

Still early for final result, but expect very slight reduction in tip and you should have a very satisfactory result.

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.

What Should Expect Regarding my Tip Post Rhinoplasty?

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

Too early to judge the final result

You have had a nice change from your surgery to refine your nasal tip.  You need more time before you can even start to judge the final result.
