When Can I Get my Rhinoplasty Results Shaved Down?

I seriously need help/rhinoplasty disaster-when is earliest earliest u can get revision? i had a bump and a little bit of a bulbous tip. I just wanted it shaved down and lifted a tiny bit. He took too much off my tip and turned it up way to high. He added onto the bridge with septum cartilage and shaved the bump just a tad which makes it look like its coming out my forhead.i wanted a lower nose not a taller one. i feel more insecure than ever. Im 1 month out and all the swelling for thickness is pretty much gone it slimmed down good. nothing else has changed. i just want it shaved down..

1 month post-op

One month post surgery is still very early for you to judge the results of your surgery.  In general it is a good idea to wait about one year before seeking a revision.

Many revisions can be done soon after the initial rhinoplasty it just depends on the swelling. It is very difficult to determine your situation without seeing your nose.
