It is not correct to have been told that your nose would be in its final state at 3 months and especially with thick , oily skin . Thick skin may take up to 18 -24 months at the tip to settle to its final state and lose all its swelling.

Swelling , some advices:

Thank you very much for enquire.Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
