Do I still have swelling on my bridge as well as tip 3 weeks post Rhinoplasty? (photo)

I feel my bridge is to large and projects far from my face, as well as the projection of the tip. I feel like this is not going to go down much more. Will I need a revision? The swelling feels like it has gone as I feel normal and can feel the bone on the bridge. I would like some professional opinions please. I would be so greatful.

Swelling three weeks post rhinoplasty

Three weeks post rhinoplasty is still very early in the healing process. Your swelling will gradually continue to go down over the next three to four months, sometimes longer. It's a process, but well worth it in the end. All the best to you as you continue to recover!

Persistent swelling three weeks after a rhinoplasty.

From the photograph it appears as though you still have a substantial amount of swelling after your rhinoplasty. Complete resolution of swelling may take many months. As a rhinoplasty patient you need to be patient.
