Is Too Much Cartilage Added on the Tip Harmful?

I had septorhinoplasty close 3 months ago and was wondering if too much septal cartilage was removed to add on the tip is bad? Will the tip soften eventually even when a lot of cartilage is placed there? Is it normal to feel heavy down the tip at this period?

Tip at three months after rhinoplasty surgery


At three months, the nasal tip will feel very firm often due to swelling. This may take up to a year to settle down.
