    The short answer to this is yes.  This may take 18 months to 2 years in thicker, oilier skin.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Skin issues with rhinoplasty

The skin can be affected by rhinoplasty and can be oilier than usual for many months. This usually resolves on its own.

Swelling in thick oily skin one year after rhinoplasty.

+1

Swelling in thick oily skin one year after rhinoplasty  will go down with even more time. The main area would be tip definition and little else changing. Waiting additional six months and if there's been no change that's probably your result.
