Nasal tip after rhinoplasty
thank you for your picture! i think it is safe to say that 1 day after surgery is extremely early to tell. at this point, not only do you have swelling, but also the tip is being supported by the cast and surrounding tape. do not be discouraged - follow your doctors post operative regimen and look forward to next week when the cast comes off and the big reveal happens. remember, any questions you have please feel free to contact your operating surgeon as they know exactly what maneuvers were performed during the surgery. enjoy your new nose! i hope you heal fast and feel better!
