Bridge Fullness 12 Weeks after Rhinoplasty
I believe you are correct that this is probably a callus formation which can occur after rhinoplasty, due to osteotomies or controlled breaking of the bone. Often times these will settle down with time, but there are treatment options.If the callus is small, sometimes a local injection of steroids will keep this to a minimum. If these become larger or persist, they can be shaved down in the office under local, typically with an 18 gauge needle. Lastly, if necessary, they can be addressed with a revision procedure.I would recommend staying in close contact with your surgeon to have this examined and get an exact diagnosis and plan. Many small bumps seen early after rhinoplasty will resolve with time and if necessary minor treatments.
