How long will swelling last for these particular procedures?

I got my nostrils narrowed and also got a dorsal implant put in to augment my bridge. The implant was just a dorsal implant and also presumably put in through my nostril since I don't believe I had an open rhino done (no stitches on tip). I know that rhinoplasty can swell up to a year, but because I just got a bridge augmentation and nostril narrowing, will it be shorter?

Rhinoplasty

Yes, it may be swollen for less time because it was closed and with minimal work.  But it still will need time to settle.
