Will this be my piggy nose forever? (Photo)

I had an open rhinoplasty yesterday morning to get rid of a bump on the bridge of my nose. The very first thing I noticed is that I now have a pig nose that looks horrible . Someone please tell me this is just swelling and will go away. If so how long.

It will get better!

Sometimes the nose looks turned up too much immediately after surgery and it improves with time.  Speak to your surgeon at your postop appointment about your concerns, but it should get much better as the days and weeks go by.
