What will my nose look like after a rhinoplasty?

I underwent a rhinoplasty 6 months ago because I wanted smaller nostrils and a thinner tip. I have waited patiently for the past 6 months, because I know swelling can take a long time to go down. Sadly, my nostrils are still long and wide rather than short and narrow. Is it possible the surgeon did not take enough cartilage out, or do you think I'm still swollen?

It would be best to discuss this questions with your surgeons, since it's hard to answer it without before and after pictures, and without knowing what was done.

Without pre and post op photos and review of your operative note it is impossible to say.  So ask your surgeon
