6 months post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns about your Rhinoplasty with us.
Congratulations for having patience and wait six months PO, which is the recommended time allowed to make judgments of value and be precise and accurate.
After having analyzed all the info and photos provided to us, i recommend to perform a Secondary Rhinoplasty (not a tip revision) this means (basically) treat the nasal bones and the nasal cartilages.
Therefore i would perform a narrowing of the nasal base (nose osteotomy) and alar and triangular cartilage shaping.

Swelling after rhinoplasty
Due to the complex nature of the nose, swelling
may take several months to resolve after a rhinoplasty. Most swelling resolves
after two weeks, but the final swelling may take up to a year to subside. It is
important to know that due to tissue trauma during surgery, there would be
significant internal and external swelling. This swelling may causes nasal
obstruction as well as widening of the nose. If you had your nasal surgery less
than a month ago, this is very normal healing process of nasal surgery.
Thank you for the questions but they are best addressed to your surgeon who knows what he did and where you should be at in your recovery.
It is tough to tell from your description, but at six months, there is still some swelling that will remain in the tip. I would recommend discussing this with your surgeon in person so they can explain your specific situation better.
Best of luck
