Why Does my Nose Looks So Little After Rhinoplasty?

Small nose after rhinioplasty
It is difficult to give you an answer without seeing preop photos. The nose may look shorter because the dorsum was taken down?
Small Nose after Rhinoplasty
A pre-op picture would be helpful, but normal swelling after the surgery makes it difficult to evaluate your nose. Discuss this with your surgeon and/or get a second opinion from another surgeon as that swelling resolves.
Nose Too Small After Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a complicated operation and it is very easy to take away too much. This is called over-resection, and can lead to collapse of the nose if too much is removed. The tip of the nose shouldn't't be below the bridge when viewed from the side. Currently this is what it looks like from your photo. This normally will progress with time. I would discuss this with your doctor.
Best of luck

Nose looks so little after rhinoplasty
A before photo would help discuss better. But my guess is either over resection or nasal collapse. Seek other opinions NOW! Sorry.

Changes in the nose after rhinoplasty
Without before and after pictures, it is very difficult to give you any specific advice. Depending on patient expectation, you may think your nose is smaller or larger that what you were imagining would happen with surgery. You should discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon.
