Bump and polly-beak deformity
You do have appear to have a polly-beak deformity, without touching your nose it is hard to determine of this is just swelling that will resolve, or it is the actual position of the tip cartilages. My guess would be the later as it appears that you have a slight saddle deformity of the bridge-in other words the bridge is too low in relationship to the tip.

Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
