I had surgery to remove a bump at age 16; I am now going to be 23. For about 3 years now I've noticed I have a hard pointy bump under the skin at the tip of nose. Now I cannot say for certain WHAT substance they injected to the tip of my nose to perk it up, all I remember is the doctor telling me to massage it for a couple of months afterwards... Which I honestly did not do. What could be the cause of this and what can I possibly do?
What is This Hard Pointy Bump at the Tip of Nose Years After Rhinoplasty?

The bump may be secondary to an irregularity of the underlying cartilages or that unknown substance which was injected to "perk up" your tip. Get a copy of your records and have a consultation with a revision specialist.
