Consider getting a second opinion about the bump on your tip after revision rhinoplasty.
You appear to have thin skin which tends to reveal more irregularities after rhinoplasty as compared to those with thicker skin types. Your thin skin may have been why your surgeon experienced a buttonhole during your surgery.
If the bump feels hard, it may be cartilage. If it's soft, it may be scar tissue, and scar tissue may improve with dilute steroid injections. Since two steroid injections didn't help, consider getting a second opinion, since further steroid injections may lead to further thinning of your skin.

Its difficult to say what this is without examining it.. however based on your story, it may be a hypertrohic scar from the button hole, that should flatten with steroids. If its calcified or extra cartilage, then steroids wont help and needs to be removed.
