Whether or not an implant was used during your original surgery it sound like a revision will be necessary. Schedule an examination with your surgeon and/or a consultation with another surgeon to get a second opinion. Make sure the doctors selected are experienced revision rhinoplasty experts.
Strange feeling in nose after rhinoplasty
I would agree Dr, Mayer, This sounds as if you have a graft or implant. This may have shifted. Contact your physician and seek his/her advice,

You may have had a silicone implant placed. Ask your surgeon if it was used or other graft material. If not, see an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon for a second opinion.
