Can you make the tip of the nose longer?
Thank you for your question.At 1 week post op, it is early to pass any judgements about your nose. The shape and size of your nose will change over the course of the next 12 months. It is only after that time that you should really consider a revision.
There are a few techniques for elongating the nose. A known example is the use of onlay grafts that lengthen the nose.Kind regards.
Early post op
please be be sure that for the next 6 months there will be always something new or looking not right about your nose.
At this stage the swelling is probably at his pick and this is why the nose looks short.
if this is of any comfort, yes, there are several techniques to lengthen the tip and in my hands they work much better with an open technique.
I am sure your plastic surgeon will take care of your concerns while you heal up.

Rhinoplasty Recovery Time
Moreover, any corrective procedures or secondary rhinoplasties are best performed at least 6 months after the initial procedure so as not to under- or over-correct any issues.
The best course of action for you is to wait for 6 months and if you are still unhappy with your result, then to see a well-experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for correction as secondary procedures are considered more complicated than first-time rhinoplasties.
