Nasal wound after rhinoplasty

That wound on the tip is not a pimple , but a small crater. You did not say if your rhinoplasty was open or closed. I hope you can go back to your original surgeon. This problem will not go away without further care. There are several options, but your surgeon would know best.

Infected dorsal augment?

I'd be concerned this could be evidence of an infected/extruding dorsal augment. Do you know what was used in your surgery? I think you would need to gather all the information you can from your surgery 11 months ago, this may mean contacting the doctor and asking for the operation notes, and then you should see one of the many very good plastic surgeons in Brisbane.

Rhinoplasty result

Not sure if you had an implant placed but if so there would be concern.  Best thing to do is contact the surgeon that performed your rhinoplasty.  They should be able to guide you through this issue. Best wishes!
