Had Septorhinoplasty and nose tip too big?
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.
If you are beyond a year, you should be examined to determine what can be done at this point.
