Scar tissue in nose 5 months post op normal?

I am upset and consumed by my nose. I had a revision tiplasty almost 5 months ago, and my tip is still swollen, big and uneven and gets red. I have scar tissue, a bump in my left nose that I can feel and it it larger than the other side of the nose. Will this get better with time? My surg does not believe in any injections. Pls advise,
