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
