The goals of any rhinoplastic surgery are to achieve improvement, not perfection. Based on your photos, you appear normally swollen only two months postoperative. Sit tight for another year before considering tertiary surgery - my hunch is that you may not need further nasal surgery.
Hope this helps.
The simple answer is that at 2 months the nose can still be very swollen. So what you see at 2 months is not what you will see at 12 months. For now I would suggest being patient.
