You are too early in the healing process to think about a revision. In general the swelling continues for up to a year after a primary rhinoplasty. There are very few exceptions to the general principle to wait for a revision surgery. I would give it at least three months and then you can speak with a revision rhinoplasty surgeon to see what is possible. Even at that point, there will be swelling that needs to subside.

Can you please send photos - it is not a good idea to have any reversal of surgery until you have had a second opinion of a long discussion with your surgeon 

In principle however ti would be possible to return you nose back close the former shape but a long discussion with your surgeon or another rhinoplasty surgeon would be needed

Also swelling will be adding to size and distorting things still so at least 6 months wait is vital
