A lot of people think swelling = cushion, soft, etc...
Swelling on the nose is actually quite hard. The hardness you feel at the tip is not bone, it's swelling.
When I went to my doc for my post op, he started pressing down at my tip, with quite some force and explained that it was all swelling. I looked in the mirror afterward and noticed that all that was in fact swelling. He had pushed it down a bit and softened it up by pressing on it, and the difference was clearly visible.
I'm would not suggest pressing down yourself. I'm just saying that the hardness is swelling and it will go down.
