Scar in my Nose Bridge
It is very difficult to answer your question without examining you. At times a stitch is used on the bridge to hold a graft in place but there is no actual incision so there will not be a scar

Scar on Nasal Bridge after Rhinoplasty
Are you sure this was done to place an implant? I've never seen an implant placed through an external incision. I cannot clearly see the wound adjacent to your cast. Small incisions are sometime made in this area for osteotomies which heal very well. Talk to your surgeon.
I have never seen an implant put in through a nasal dorsal incision. I have used a nasal dorsal suture to secure a dorsal implant but every implant is place through an open rhinoplasty approach. However, I learn something new every day.
