Bump after rhinoplasty
It appears that you might be referring to the columellar scar. If you can feel a bump it is ok as it is usually normal scar tissue. However, if you can easily see a bump, then it needs correction with steroid injections (kenalog) and if that does not work then revision of the scar.

Why do I have a bump near my rhinoplasty incision 9 weeks post op?
Thank you for your question. After a rhinoplasty it can take several months for the scar to mature and for the swelling to subside. You may not realize the final shape of your nose for up to 12 months after surgery. It is too soon in your convalescence to determine the final shape of your nose. Give the scar time to mature. I recommend that you follow up with your plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns.
Accurate answer needs close exam and evaluation, but usually people 2-3 months after surgery feel the scar tissue like hard ball which over the time gets better.
