- To improve profile ; it had a slight hook at the tip.
- To improve tip ; to push it up a little more.
- To reduce width of nose.
I had a rhinoplasty almost 4 weeks ago. The bruising subsided by the time I had my splint off 6 days later and I was actually quite happy with the results when the splint came off; my nose appeared to be defined & upturned. The swelling was extreme after I took the fibre glass tape off and now when I look at the tip of my nose in profile it seems swollen like there is a small hump on the tip of my nose. Is the immediate post-splint nose indicative of final results?
