Callus on nose
Sometimes early post-op, there is swelling and this may give the illusion of a bump, Give it time to heal and for the swelling to come down.

The swelling can be prominent at this early stage. I would follow with your surgeon. This may take the full year or more to resolve after the surgery. Kenneth Hughes, MD
