Nasal irregularites after rhinoplasty

There can be bumps after rhinoplasty surgery.  It is best to see if this is bony or soft tissue.  Sometimes injectables can be used to improve minor imperfections.  In many cases the best option is to wait for a year to see the final result.

Hard Bump that Flattens When Pressed 4 Months Postop Rhinoplasty

    The bump may be injected with steroids, which are not without risks such as skin thinning.  Some plastic surgeons would state that this should resolve over the course of a year.

Residual edema after rhinoplasty

There several treatment options your surgeon may recommend.  He/she may want to inject a steroid or 5-fluourouracil into the area to reduce the bump.  In addition he/she may recommend digital massage or taping to help expedite resolution of the bump.
