Hi Max2142,

There are a number of possible causes.  Perhaps the radix was taken down so much when the rhinoplasty was done that you have extra skin there. Perhaps you have active muscles or a descending forehead (dropping eyebrows).  There's likely a good solution to your problem, but we'd need to take a look.

Best of luck!

Dear max2142,

I recommend making a consultation with either your previous surgeon or another rhinoplasty surgeon to evaluate your nasal bulge you describe. It is hard to appreciate without photographs what you describe. An examination will help decide the best intervention. Best of luck!

It is not possible to give you a meaningful answer without an examination to see what this bump consists of.  See a board certified plastic surgeon for that exam and consultation about your options.

I think that you need to be seen in person to be properly evaluated for this "bulge" that you describe.
