Swelling One Year After Rhinoplasty?

I had a rhinoplasty one year ago and an alar base reduction 3 months ago as well. the swelling was pretty much subsided expect i got hit in the nose 5 days. Wasn't hard and it didn't hurt. Plus my nose didn't bleed. It didn't swell up DRAMATICALLY but the tip def looks wider and its bothering me. Also does running a lot help swelling bc of the sweeting? I thought running would help it but i would like to know if that has a negative or positive effect on my situation.

Trauma to the nose and exercise can induce swelling. This all should get better with time.  If concerned about the trauma, then you shoudl see your surgeon.
