Is this swelling normal after Rhinoplasty? (photos)

I had septorhinoplasty 10 days ago. The splint was removed two days ago. My nose is so swollen and I am starting to panic. I just want a 2nd opinion that it was a good job and that the abnormal look to the front and tip is down to swelling. I am really worried!
