The tip is the last place to totally settle. It will go through a phase where it is rock hard - and then slowly will soften up. as this happens you will know that the nose is beginning to heal. It can take a full year or more for things to settle! It all depends on what was done during your surgery, how your skin naturally heals, etc. For now, the best thing to do is be patient and enjoy your new nose!
