In most cases, it takes a year for the nose to fully heal after nasal surgery (rhinoplasty). While the upper nose heals faster, the tip in particular matures very slowly. I have seen subtle changes, and increased softening occurring up to two years after a primary rhinoplasty in some, while others look great at a few months. There is a tremendous amount of variability, and of course, it depends on what was done. Your plastic surgeon is the best person to provide guidance, as they have the most information about your particular experience. Best of luck to you, and speedy healing.
