Tip refinement after two months

At two months, it is a bit early to see the final result, and more than likely over the next several months, the tip will become more refined.  The thicker the tissues, the less refinement will be appreciated.

Tip refinement after ethnic rhinoplasty

+2

Being only two months out from your rhinoplasty surgery you should have continued improvement to the swelling of your tip. This process takes about a year in most cases.

2 Months After Revision Rhino, Will the Tip Appear More Refined as Swelling Decreases?

+1

It can as Open Rhinoplasty typically takes longer to heal however, there's no way to know for certain as I don't know what was done during your Rhinoplasty.  You'll need to ask your Rhinoplasty Surgeon this question.

Tip Refinement 2 Months after Open Revision Rhinoplasty

+1

The swelling you have 2 months after an open revision rhinoplasty will continue to decrease for at least a year. Refinement will improve as the swelling resolves. You should be patient because this takes a long time following a revision in an ethnic nose, especially in those with thick skin.
