Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Is This Bump After Rhinoplasty my Bone?
I had the bump on my nose shaved down (closed Rhinoplasty) and cartilage added to the tip of my nose to give it a pointy shape. I was very happy with my nose after the removal of the splint which was 3 days after surgery and I kept taping my nose. For 7 days, my nose was slightly swollen but it looked perfect--no bump at all. Now it has been 14 days and I see a slight bump where it was originally removed. It feels hard as bone.
Is this bump my bone? Is that the bump that was there but due to the swelling I didn't see it? Could it possible that it's still swelling? It's hard as bone. Please help. I feel depressed.
