The tip definition can take upto a year,so please wait & see your surgeon after one year of surgery.If you still have issues,someting can be done at that stage.

Dear germangirl1990, Believe it or not your nose may still be evolving. Although we often tell patients that we will assess the result at 6 months, often the nose can continue to change for 12 months or longer. I would make your concerns known to your surgeon.

The 3rd and 4th picture look very similar.

The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.
