Best Massage Technique for a Swollen, Rigid Tip 1 Month Post-op to Make It Go Lower & Decrease Pressure, Edema, and Pain?

Thick-skinned non smoker/drinker;had open revision rhino 32 days ago w/ a trimmed Medpor porex tip top graft, (doctor didn't tell me about the Medpor),ear cartilage,& tip rotation.Tip is still massively bulbous, pink, & puffy,w/fluid over the newly elevated tip & more underneath. How do I get rid of the ball under my tip? Surgeon said to massage towards the cheeks w/ a lubricant, but will that help the ball underneath? Is that the best technique?Seems to irritate the swelling,not help it..
