I am not sure about my rhinoplasty result

Hello. I am on my 13th day of surgery and I am not liking the result. During consultation, I told my surgeon that I didn't like my short round nose - no bridge as well. So I've told him that these are the things that I wanted done: 1) to lower down the tip of my nose so that my nostrils aren't showing 2) have a nose bridge 3) make my nose look longer and slimmer cause I have a short round nose. So the surgery happened and I initially liked how the tip of my nose is much lower and it's not as high as it was before. I felt relieved as well since my nostrils aren't showing that much anymore - so far then. However, as my nose heals through the days, I noticed the tip going higher again! As if going back to its original place - almost piggy like! Also, my nostrils are becoming visible again just like before! It was as if someone's stretching the tip of my nose back to where it was before! Although I am happy with my new nose bridge, I am just not thrilled about the tip of my nose. I am worried that the end result wouldn't make any change at all, as if I hadn't done surgery! I paid a lot of money and I don't want to put it into waste. Help me please is this normal? Is there a chance that it will go down to a point where my nostrils won't be much prominent/visible? Or do I have to have it done again? :( I am totally having a melt down right now. I am disappointed and scared!!! :( I posted some photos for reference.

Hi there,
I can understand that you're concerned about your nose, but please note that the nose shape can be judged approx. 6-12 months post-op. The nose simply changes and is in the process of change. I'd advise you to be in a close contact with your surgeon and ... being patient to see the final result.
Best regards from Warsaw,

You have to wait until the healing process is completed = 6-12 months. Your nose will change.
There after any desired corrective surgery of your nose can be done. Keep in contact with your surgeon, please!

Best regards from Frankfurt,

Dear JulsMarga, it's too early to see the effect you wanted to achieve. The healing process takes up to 9-10 months. Right now, there are few factors influences on your nose, especially the swelling, which can cause that situation you're worrying about. Give yourself time and stay in touch with your doctor.
Regards from Poland :-)

13 days after rhinoplasty is too early to make a comment about the result. A couple more weeks you have to wait for an approximate the result.
