12th Day after my rhinoplasty, I use tape and cast at night but since the first day of night cast I got a bruise on the sides of my bridge which I didnt have before and the skin in that area is a bit softer than the rest of my nose. I realized there is a slight bump and im concerned that what the doctor shaved off is coming back. I dont know if my night cast and taping method caused it..its hard as a bone, will it go with time? Thank you

Bruised Nasal Bridge
The side of your bridge appears swollen; in your description, it's not clear if this is soft or hard. I recommend not using the cast, which may put pressure on that area, until you see your surgeon.

See you rhinoplasty surgeon for examination and advice. There is likely nothing to be done at this point. Good luck and be well.
Bruised and Swollen bridge after Rhinoplasty
Most likely, you will not have return or recurrence of the bony hump. Generally speaking, Day 12 after rhinoplasty is too early to make a judgment. I would guess as the swelling goes down and the skin contracts, you will have an improvement. Please consult with your surgeon.
