Small bump 8 days post-op septoplasty, could a sneeze cause this?
It is difficult to advise you without performing an exam. I would recommend following up with your surgeon so he/she may examine you and provide you with advice. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Small bump after Rhinoplasty
Dear lerk, thank you for your question.It may take several months for swelling to
subside after rhinoplasty. Here in San Diego, we follow our patients for one
year to follow their healing. Consider following up with your surgeon to
monitor your progress and see if any intervention is necessary. Rarely a second
opinion may be in order. Best of Luck.
Bump on nose 8 days after septoplasty
I agree that it could be some air. It could also be a small hematoma or collection of blood that occurred as a result of your sneeze. Make sure you follow up with your surgeon and let the surgeon know about this issue.

It is possible that you forced air under your soft tissue, I saw that once in a colleague who actually had his own rhinoplasty. At this point you have to let things heal and be patient.
