Seven weeks ago I had rhinoplasty to correct my crooked nose and remove the "beak" . A few weeks ago things were shaping up nicely, however, now a lump has formed at the top of the bridge of my nose. Is this part of the healing?

Yes it could be just inflamation
yes it might be properly corrected with local ultrasound and an spetial gel perhaps just with automanual massage with gel

Salzapal, This looks like regrowth of your rhinion. See your physician. Usually taping this, massage and judicious use of steroid injections will solve this problem. Occasionally, this will need to be rasped again; this is usually done a year or so after your original surgery. I do about 100 noses a year and see this in about 10% of my cases but only rasp about 1-2/ year. Good luck!

The nose can be swollen for up to a year or more. Swelling will depend upon the nature of maneuvers employed, presence of grafts or implants, thickness of skin, open vs closed, revision vs primary, etc.
