Hello, im 25 years old i had rhinoplasty surgery 12 days ago. My nose was very fat and i have think skin. My surgeon made my nose smaller and to add more definition he added graft from my nose. The nose seems too low now and the tip is not straight at the top from profile. Could you please tell me will my nose get a bit higher? And will my tip get smaller? Will it stay so pointy?

Results Of A Recent Rhinoplasty
Usually, it takes about 12 months for the end-results of a rhinoplasty to get established but in your case you have to anticipate a little bit more since you have a thick nasal skin.
That being said, it is too early to project how your results will look like and currently your nose is swollen. It seems that you have had an aggressive procedure as the bruises show in the photos and so you will need to rest and relax following your surgeon's instructions religiously.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your inquiry.
The best of luck to you.
