While a rhinoplasty will produce 'permanent' changes to the nose, the reality is that the nose continues to remodel and refine over time. This lasts for years, even if these are very subtle changes. This is not to say that it will return to its pre-operative state. There is no way to fully answer your question, because the answer really depends on the patient's nose and what is done during the surgery.

Stability after Rhinoplasty
After a rhinoplasty the the changes should be permanent; although your nose will naturally change with age, it should not revert to the pre-operative size or shape.
Rhinoplasty and position
Your question is very non-specific. Your nose should maintain the permanent corrections once it is performed. As for returning to your original shape it would be very difficult to do that in a revision surgery in most cases.
