When I took off the bandages they put on my nose after the cast, my nose took the form of the bandages. Any suggestion? (photo)

Post-op rhinoplasty care
In general, you will notice your nose changes shape as the swelling leaves and nasal skin contracts. Swelling follows gravity and it is possible that your supratip (the area above the tip) is holding on to more swelling as you heal.
At this time, I would strongly encourage you to speak with your surgeon. There are many different post-op techniques that can be employed to help the nose heal optimally. These include though are not limited to taping the nose, steroid injections, massage, and others. Only your surgeon can provide recommendations at this time as only your surgeon knows the exact maneuvers performed during your surgery.
Hopefully as the swelling goes down, your nose will look better and better. Definitely contact your surgeon for recommendations.
Good luck from Manhattan.
