Does this look like swelling, or did he make the tip wider?

Nasal tip swelling is expected only ten days following Rhinoplasty Surgery

Swelling after nose surgery
Please prepare yourself for cycles of swelling going up and down over 6-8 weeks. The swelling may not go down evenly. One side will go down and then the other. The tip is the last area to calm down. The majority of swelling will go away over 6-9 months, but even at a year there may be residual swelling.
When you go to your follow-up appointment ask your surgeon about the course of swelling relative to the amount of surgery performed and your skin thickness.
