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.

Asian rhinoplasty recovery takes some time and patience
Give yourself enough time to adjust to the new appearance of your nose. You may find that your bridge looks too high initially and might be too anxious with your result, until you get used to your new look.
Most rhinoplasty surgeons feel that the bridge of the Asian nose should not go beyond the eyelashes or at least at the same level to preserve the patients' ethnicity and create a new nose that looks natural relative to the rest of their face.
I hope that helps and good luck.
