Unhappy after rhinoplasty
Thanks for the question. A rhinoplasty is one of the most psychologically challenging plastic surgery procedures that one can undergo. It is not uncommon for patients to feel like their new nose is not their own. Based on basic facial measurements your nose does not appear to be too small for your face and your profile view has improved. As time passes you will notice that the nasal tip has more definition and you will become more accustomed to your new nose.

It looks fine
I would have every expectation that with time you will have a nice looking nose that suits your face and you will be a happy patient. Put your iPhone away. 10 minutes mirror time per day. Get new friends. Wait patiently. Sorry if this seems harsh but someone has to tell you.
10 days post op, some advices:
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
