Slight Hump by the Tip of Nose 2 Months After Rhinoplasty - Manhasset, NY

Had my deviated septum corrected along with removing a bump on my nose 2 months ago. But as the swelling has gone down, I've noticed that a hump has formed by the tip of my nose. It's noticeable on pictures and I really don't like the way it looks. Not sure if I will need a revision, is it still swollen, or is it something else

From one Manhasset-ite to another... (I grew up there but moved away over 20 years ago)... my doctor told me that the way swelling works, which is mostly water btw, is that it slowly drains downward, which is why the bridge de-swells first and tip last. So it's possible that what you're noticing is swelling. I feel that my tip is more noticeably swollen now at 4mos. than it was up to this point. I hope that is the case for you. What does your doctor say?

I went last night because I was concerned. He said it may be scar tissure build up and that it usually goes away in time. I will go back for a check up in 2 months. He also said I can get a steriod shot to help with it, if it's still there after a year then we can do a revision

Thanks for the update! That sounds like a good plan.

Thanks for sharing on RealSelf! The exact same thing happened to me. I don't know if it was always there and removing cartilage on the bridge made it more pronounced or what, but it was there and there it stayed. You're still earlyish days though, so there's no saying that your situation will be like mine, though.

Please let us know as you continue to heal. We'd love to see your photos! You can blur out your eyes if that makes you more comfortable.

Fingers crossed for you!
