will upturned pig like nose settle down within in time?
i had a septo/rhinoplasty done 18 days ago and the cast removed on the 10th day after surgery. i noticed that my tip of my nose is upturned and pig lookish. i asked my ps and she said its normal and it has to come down and itll take 1 year to see full results. is this true? and is there anything i could do to help the process? maybe taping?

I agree with your surgeon, that the final results are evident up to even 18 months Post-op. Nevertheless, some surgical results are clearly permanent. I would have to see photos of your front and side views in order to better advise.
