A cyst in my nose after rhinoplasty or infection?

Get a copy of your operative note if possible when being examined by a separate surgeon after rhinoplasty.
What you describe could be one of many things. Get a copy of your operative note. Foreign material used during the rhinoplasty might be an issue.
Cyst in nose
There are a lot of oil glands in the lining of the nose. I have only seen one cae of a cyst form after a nose surgery. It required excision in the office. If there is some drainage it can be cultured to identify any infection.
