Polly beak one month after nose surgery
Swelling is likely part of the "polly beak" that you are seeing. A polly beak is caused by either too much supra tip fullness and/or insufficient tip rotation. At one month both after your surgery both of these may be affected by swelling. I would continue to wait and reevaluate your nose shape as healing progresses. Sometime taping may help with the swelling but time alone is the biggest factor.
All the best,
