Upturned nose after rhinoplasty. 6 weeks post op.

Hi there. I am 6 weeks post opp and am really worried about how upturned my nose is both from the side and the front. Is there a chance it could still drop or would that have happened by week 6? My swelling has really gone down all over my nose but my tip is obviously still rock hard- is there a chance that the to is really swollen and when it gets softer it will drop? I'm really worried. Thank you!
