i am 2 months post op after open rhinoplasty. Since the surgery i have had a pimple like bump on the incision line. My dr. Advised me to put pressures. On the bump to make it go down. That has not worked. Other side is healing fine.it is visable and red. Is it scar tissue? Can it be fixed and how? I am very self conscious. Was it surgeon error? Please help..

Is the Pimple Like Bump Scar Tissue?
If there is not a foreign body, scar remodeling takes place over the course of a year.
