Any change in physical examination warrants a follow-up with your plastic surgeon for accurate diagnosis and treatment. Without direct examination any online advice you receive is pure speculation and more likely will be confusing rather than helpful.

Best wishes.

What is the bump?  Where exactly is it?  If it is part of the incision, it may represent a sticth abscess or healing issues.  AN exam woudl be warranted.  You shoudl probably speak with your surgeon.

This sounds like a suture abscess but to be certain I would contact your surgeon for an evaluation to determine if any treatment is needed.
