Small Nose After Rhinoplasty?

I had my nose reshaped last week, and the cast was removed yersterday. My nose looks right size at this time, and I don't wish to have it smaller. I wonder how smaller it will go, and is there any way to prevent it from getting too small? Thanks

Depending what was done during surgery will depend how much swelling you have right now. The nose will get smaller for sure. There is no way to prevent the swelling from disappearing.
