3 weeks since nose job and wondering if it's swelling that I have or new bone/ cartilage growth?
The end result of most rhinoplasty procedures is not for 12 months on average. I would at least give it a few months and revisit your concerns with your surgeon. Good luck and be safe.

Thank you for your question. It takes several months to know what the final result after your rhinoplasty. I would just give it more time, based on your postoperative photo I think you are on track to have a great result. Good luck.
Your Look after a Rhinoplasty
After a rhinoplasty or nose job, there is always rebound swelling after the cast is removed. It will likely settle but you should check back with your surgeon if you are concerned.
I hope that helps. Best regards.
