Hello about three years ago I had a rhinoplasty done to remove a bump on my nose and to correct a breathing issue. All went well and I was happy with the results. I went away for 3 weeks on holiday a month after I had just stopped a course of accutane. I was pretty much getting a few hours of sun a day. When I saw a few photos from my holiday from different cameras the tip of my nose looked as if the skin was twisting and white pigmented bumps... please advise

Consult with your rhinoplasty surgeon. If there aren't any structural abnormalities, see a physician experienced in the treatment of skin pigment problems.

Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to explain your situation based on the description provided. It would be best to consult with your rhinoplasty surgeon first. If they do are not able to provide a real cogent explanation, you may benefit from seeing a dermatologist who can provide a different perspective. Good luck.
Tip pigmentation after rhinoplasty.
You need to see a dermatologist if the only problem is the pigmentation and the rest of the nose os good. This may be related to the accutane since I have never seen this in 35 years of rhinoplasty.
