Removal of nasal grafts
I would recommend not adjusting or removing any nasal grafts for at least 6-12 months after surgery. The majority of nasal swelling can decrease by 6 months, but depending on what is done this may take more and swelling can definitely last even up to a year. This can depend on many factors. I recommend seeing your nasal surgeon to address and evaluate your concerns. Best of luck.

I agree that your tip is too wide. I would definitely wait until one year post-op to consider another revision. Even a small improvement in your nasal tip edema may give you significantly better proportions.
