Contrary to what they say, the swelling in the tip continues to decrease well beyond the 1 year mark. My nose has softened quite a bit since I last posted, and though it has reduced in size in the tip area it still feels like there's a tiny bit of swelling left, so I expect more refinement. I am much happier with the results now that the swelling has decreased. My nose is so much smaller and refined even though I had a huge bulbous nose to begin with, but without looking pinched or overdone. Dr. Behmand perfomed the rhinoplasty as well as septoplasty / turbinectomy (and upper lip augmentation). I would highly recommend.
