Swelling often goes down on one side and then the other in rhinoplasty. The tip area calms down the last. It is a healing process. It will take time until you can see your result. I recommend talking with your surgeon about your healing process based on the extent of surgery and skin thickness. Your surgeon may also suggest some safe strategies to prevent additional swelling.
