5 weeks PO doc had to manipulate my nose, now bump looks bigger! Could pushing around on it have caused the bump to get bigger?

5 weeks post op septoplasty and osteotomy
At this point, you are still at the "ugly period" following nose surgery, and this period usually last for about 2 months. Pushing or massaging the area should not cause the bump that you feel looks bigger after your follow up visit.
Please be patient and wait for 4-5 more months before considering a touch-up procedure.
