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 (right after splint was taken off).  My surgeon said swelling will go down by 15-20 percent of my current total nose volume. Is that a significant amount? 

To clarify, the pic on left is my nose 2 months post op. The right is after the surgery, but right after splint was removed. I am not happy with the tip size currently, on the left.

    I think it looks pretty good ...not too extreme. Give it time, but even if it stays exactly as it is now, doctor did a good job.
