Tip swelling after open rhinoplasty?

Why is my tip this swollen a bit over two months after rhinoplasty? I had a bulbous nose, so I thought it could be because extensive work was done on the tip. Will it get back to being far less swollen, as it is in the picture with the black shirt? My surgeon said swelling will go down by 15-20 percent of my current total nose volume. Is that a significant amount?

(Also, I was looking down a bit in the second pic, so that’s another reason why the shape looks a bit different.)

    Your nose looks superb. The Surgeon did a great job.

    Rhinoplasty, like any other surgery, needs time to heal, and settle.

    Now, please be patient, and enjoy your new nose.

    You will be laughing with joy soon.
