Hi, I recently had open rhinoplasty. I am one week out and happy with the results thus far. My question is WHY exactly is the tip the last to heal? I was told one year for final results but that I'll have a pretty good idea of the rest of my nose months before that; to see the final results of the tip, 12 months. Just curious why and can't seem to find an exact answer online. Thank you
