Have a question?
Ask a doctor
Ask your surgeon if massage will help reduce bump on nose after rhinoplasty
It is not uncommon to see or feel a bump on the nose after rhinoplasty. If the bump is on the side of the nose massage may help. However it is crucial that you see your plastic surgeon and ask if the Dr. will approve massage to help the swelling. It can be a bone chip, callus formation as you mention, or simply residual blood in the tissues.
Side bumps on nose after rhinoplasty
After the rhinoplasty you should not touch the nose to feel any bumps or irregularities. Those take time to settle down. If you are concerned about the appearance of the bump then you should discuss it with your surgeon to see if it requires steroid injections or it will need revision surgery.
