Thank you for your question.
The shape and size of your nose will keep changing over the course of the next 9 months. It is only after 12 months will you see the final result. You will need to stay in touch with your surgeon as your nose steadily recovers from the surgery. If after 12 months, your tip has dropped significantly, then you will need to discuss this with your surgeon. Hopefully he will be in a position to help you.
