What if my doctor shaved my hump down too much?

Q: I’m 2 weeks post op. I honestly hate my new nose! Everyone keeps telling me it’s the swelling and I’m so tired of hearing that. Swelling has nothing to do with the hump I had. I feel my doctor shaved down too much! I would love my new nose if it wasn’t shaved down so much, it’s really pretty drastic. Should my doctor have to fix this? Or am I being too dramatic? Will things get better? I just wanted a really nice nose so I wouldn’t be self conscious anymore but I feel I didn’t get that.

A: Your profile has not reached its final appearance.  Once the majority of the swelling resolves (in 3-6 months) then you can start to judge whether the hump was over-resected or not.
