Nasal tip swelling after rhinoplasty
It is expected for swelling to persist for several months following rhinoplasty. While the majority of swelling usually dissipates in the first 3 months, it may be 12 to 18 months until the final result is appreciated. Be patient and you should see continued improvement.

Healing and swelling after rhinoplasty
It definitely takes at least a few months for swelling to go down after nasal surgery. The tip is the region that takes the longest to see the swelling to go down and the changes to become visible.
Give it some time. What you have at six to twelve months is what it will eventually look like.

Too soon to assess swollen tip
It is too soon to see your final results. Depending on your skin thickness it can take up to a year to see what your tip will ultimately look like.

Give it a full year: tip swelling can take a long time to resolve. When sensation is normal and the tip is nice and soft you can begin to evaluate final results.
Bulbous tip at two months
At two months after rhinoplasty the nose is still going to be very swollen. Give it time it may take up to a year.
