The bones and cartilage in the nose don't actually grow with time, but the cartilages that form the tip of the nose release their grip on the upper regions of the nose and pull down and away with gravity.  That movement lowers the position of the tip, making the nose look longer, and thus bigger.  Changes in the skin can also make a nose appear bigger.

She also had a mild convexity of a hump along the dorsum of her nose.

You can see that the jowl, the droop of skin between her ear and her chin, was pulled tighter.

Questioner: Is my Nose Way Too Big? Should I Consider Rhinoplasty?
I've always hated my nose. I've never seen another person with a similar nose as mine. I feel its way too big. Should I consider a rhinoplasty :\?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: A wide nose like yours can usually be improved with a rhinoplasty.
From this one photo at least, it does appear that you would be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty. You seem to have strong cartilages that make your nose perhaps wider than average. Your nasal bones, in the upper half of your nose, are also wide apart, and could be brought closer together during the operation. I don’t see a profile view, but it also seems that your nose is long, from where it starts between your eyes down to your tip, and perhaps your profile view could be improved by elevating the tip of the nose at the same time as making the other changes.
