I had an open rhinoplasty done 1 year ago. A month after the procedure, I noticed a hump. My surgeon advised me to massage the area and put a pressure on the hump. It's been a year since the procedure and yet the hump is still very prominent. My other concern is the tip of my nose being so round.
What Should I Do About a Prominent Hump Following Rhinoplasty?

Secondary Rhinoplasty to Remove Hump
Yes you do still have a small hump. At this point I think it would be safe to have a secondary rhinoplasty (revision procedure) to take down your hump.
Nasal hump after rhinoplasty
Since it has been a year from your initial surgery, it is acceptable to undergo revision rhinoplasty to file down the prominent hump. It should be relatively easy to do and if your original surgeon is quite versed in revision rhinoplasty, you should have minimal concern. Further narrowing and refinement of the tip can be accomplished through tip surgical techniques and can be addressed at the same.

I would go back and see your plastic surgeon. A hump may regorw in a minority of patients and it usually will require another smaller procedure to correct. You may also be a candidate for an alar wedge excision to narrow your nostrils. See my video.
