The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more, and the nose should appear more refined with time. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.

Great result at 2 months why not allow a full year of healing before thinking about revisions??? Again great result!
