Why has a hump appeared on my nose after rhinoplasty?

Without knowing exactly what you had done or without pics, I can only guess based on what I've seen before. After an opening the nose for rhinoplasty and removing part of the septum to help breathing, the nose will drop about 1-2 mm.  If there was a small, not noticeable bony cartilaginous hump there before, once the soft tissue of the nose drops, the hump will stand out more.  The hump was probably there before but very slight and now it stands out and it something to notice.

Best of luck
