At 5 weeks post rhino steroid injection to nasal tip made tip narrow and nicely tapered. Now at 4 months and 3 weeks post op the tip is not terrible but wider and less defined again.Will the tip ever go back to being narrower over time or its a false temporary result from steroid.

Tip Wide 4 Months after Rhinoplasty
In an open rhinoplasty, the tip may take 12 months to reach its final appearance. Give it some more time.
Tip at 5 months
At five months the nsoe believe it or not is still healing and there ismore than likley some stiffness and swelling still persisting. Give it a year.
Steroid injection post rhinoplasty
The nasal tip can shrink over the first two years. In most situations final results are evident at 12 months. In situations where patients have thick skin ,swelling to the tip should be anticipated. In my practice I selectively inject patients with steroids every three months over the first year of healing.
