A Bump Has Formed 2 Months Post-Op Rhinoplasty, Could this be Cartilage or Swelling? (photo)
I had open rhinoplasty to reduce the width & size of my nose. My nostrils were taken in and I had gor-tex implant. At two months I noticed a bump on the left side of my nose. The bump is not very visible, when I touch it you can definitely tell it exists. I had my 3 month check up, my surgeon informed me it was cartilage. I told him it bothered me, he said it "might" soften, or it might be something I will have forever. What is the likelihood it will disappear, or what can be done to reduce it?
