I had wanted a nose job for 5 years. I had a hump in the middle of my nose, my tip was bulbous, and my nose overall was too long. I met with a board certified plastic surgeon whose online ratings are all positive. He went over with me what he could accomplish using computer imaging. I told him to only show me what he could accomplish, not just what I want to see. I liked what he came up with and he was confident that he could do that.

I had the surgery done 4 days ago. The tip of my nose is now larger than it was before! Overall, my nose is not as long, but the tip isn't refined at all and is wider than it was before surgery, which the surgeon told me and showed me he would refine it.

I get the splint taken off in 3 days. I'm starting to feel like maybe this was a mistake. I know that swelling is expected, but for my tip to look larger after my surgeon told me he'd make it smaller makes me question if this is not swelling, but permanent.

If you have any experience with this, please let me know.
