Is it normal for a hooked nose to return after a rhinoplasty procedure?

Question:
I had rhinoplasty six months ago to repair a hooked nose. Immediately after surgery, I loved the results, but I feel like the hook has slowly started to return. Is this possible? Can anything correct it?

Answer:
The final results of a rhinoplasty will usually not be seen until approximately 1 year after surgery. Hopefully, photographs were taken prior to surgery so that they can be compared to those taken over the course of the healing process. Your concern is something you should discuss with your surgeon so that you can achieve optimal results.
