Looking good at this early stage!
Thank you for your question. Your photos are typical and look quite good for 13 days post rhinoplasty. The upturned nasal tip is always exaggerated by early swelling. Tip descent is progressive and gradual over a 2 month period to achieve a more pleasing "lower" position. However, fine contour details of the nasal tip and dorsum may take a year before fully displaying the underlying structural work of a rhinoplasty surgeon. While your results are typical for 13 days following surgery, the true fine underlying structural details is still camouflaged by swelling. It is best to have your treating surgeon address any concerns as he/she is the only one who is certain of the underlying structural work performed.
