Three Month Rhinoplasty Results

While three months is not yet long enough to reveal the final result, you are certainly seeing some of what the final result would be. Without posting original before surgery pictures, it is impossible to know how far you have come from what you looked like before. But fullness in the supratip and lower end of the middle vault is not likely going to change with more time, nor will the 'anterior septal angle' change so that there is less tip drooping.

3 months post-op is too soon to judge your final result following Rhinoplasty Surgery.

You appear to have a nice result.

I see that you have some fullness of your lower bridge, just above your tip. If it feels spongy, it may improve with time. If this is bothering you, you could ask your surgeon if he thinks a dilute triamcinolone acetonide (steroid) injection might be beneficial for you.

Hope this is helpful.
