The tip of my nose beneath the cast looks huge. Is this normal?
Take a deep breath- you just had surgery so it is normal for you to look "surgical" a few days afterwards. The swelling will change over the next weeks and months so please be patient. It takes at least a year to recover from rhinoplasty although you should be sociable after one to two weeks,
Swelling around the nasal tip especially when performed open can take severall months and sometimes up to a year to settle completely.
