I still have swollen tip 4 months post-op. Will drooping columella subside?

I still have a swollen tip 4 months post-op with a drooping columella that appears worse when I smile. Will this subside with the swelling? I've become depressed and am distraught that I may have to undergo another operation. :(

Rhinoplasty and swelling
Swelling of the nose can take up to a year and sometimes longer to subside. Be patient. If you are ultimately not satisfied at that point, then speak with your surgeon about revision.
