Swelling after rhinoplasty

If you're only 2 weeks out from your revision rhinoplasty, I would say it is very, very early to be concerned about the appearance of the tip.  You will probably find that over the next couple of weeks the tip will become even more defined.  Because it is the most dependent part of the nose and close to the incision, the tip tends to swell the most and for the longest.  I would continue to follow up with your surgeon and, more importantly, be patient as your nose looks much improved compared to before.   Good luck.
