I am about 3 1/2 months post op, and I have seen no improvement in the slight tilt to my tip after surgery. I did not have it that way before, and wanted to know if it is still possible to be swelling on the tip, or asymmetry that I may need a revision for? I have posted before, 2 weeks post and now pics so you can see it wasn't crooked before. Thank you!
My nose slanted towards the left. Could it still be swelling on the tip? (photos)

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