Nose Swelling is normal after rhinoplasty
It is understandable that you are a concerned with what you feel and see after your rhinoplasty. Changes after rhinoplasties vary with every patient and edema is anticipated and it tends to mask and distort that actual results of your surgery. I would say that you should take it easy on yourself and let the swelling subside.
Therefore, it is way to early to pass a judgement. Usually, a year is required before formulating how your nose will be. Even then, your nose will keep shaping itself and to complement your face for better results in the years to come.
My best recommendations at the moment is to be patient, allow nature to take its course and edema subsides for better results. There is no doubt that once the swelling subsides, more definition and shape will be achieved and you should be happier with the results.
Also, it is important that you keep communicating with your surgeon and work as a team together to achieve the best results possible.
Congratulations on your surgery and please remain positive!
