Rhinoplasty healing can take up to a year and even longer. In the first week it is common for the nose to look too elevated. It is very difficult to tell anything with your cast and tape still on. Even when the cast comes off the nose looks more elevated then it will end up looking.
Be patient and focus on healing until the cast comes off. Discuss your concerns with your rhinoplasty surgeon as he knows what your goals were and what was achieved in surgery. See the video link to go through a video journey of a patient after rhinoplasty surgery. Notice how, in the video, or tip looks over lifted in the beginning, and settles down as the healing progresses.
Is my nose tip too high after open rhinoplasty?
It is simply too early to make a judgement about the final result.
