I had a revision rhinoplasty 6 months ago. As part of the revision, I had my bridge widened with a cartilage graft. Now, there is a bump on the top of the bridge, where the graft was placed. The surgeon feels certain that the bump is a result of the graft. (I was wearing sunglasses shortly after the surgery, and I am not sure whether this caused the cartilage to become displaced.) As a remedy, the surgeon has jabbed the place where the bump has formed with a blunt needle to try to dice the cartilage. However, after a couple of attempts at this, the bump still remains.

- bump on bridge is very noticable (con)

I had a revision because I wanted to improve the nose

Is there a better method to resolving this? Or...

Is there a better method to resolving this? Or could the bump actually be a sign that my bridge was fractured, accidentally, during the surgery?

I am still uncertain as to whether I would recommend this surgeon. I am not happy with the nose as it is now. However, if the problem can be resolved, I should be very happy.
