Is drooping in the tip and asymmetry a result of swelling?

Rhinoplasty at two weeks.
At two weeks postop, it is way too early to judge your result after rhinoplasty surgery. The nose does swell a fair amount, and it takes the better part of a year for the tip swelling to resolve. I tell my patients that 80 to 85% of swelling resolves in 6 to 8 weeks, but the tip takes 9 to 12 months.Try to be patient, and follow your surgeon's instructions.
