Right next to the incision there is a hard bump. It is tender to the touch. Could this be a dissolvable suture? Aren't they supposed to dissolve? I am almost a month post op nose job. It resembles a pimple. However, I can not see any suture underneath the skin.

Bump Next to Columellar Incision
As other posters have said, the bump may be secondary to an ingrown hair, a stitch placed under the skin which will dissolve, or a skin suture which was only partially removed. All these problems are minor - see your surgeon.

It is not uncommon to have in ingrown vestibular hair (vibrissae) or suture abscess in the incision. Occasionally this may represent an infected or exposed graft. In any case, you should point this out to your surgeon.
