New dorsal hump after rhinoseptoplasty? (Photo)

I had Rhinoseptoplasty to remove a dorsal hump on my nose. It's 11 days post op, and although the original hump is gone, there appears to be a new one higher up! It's just below the area in between my eyebrows, right where the nose starts. It's completely solid like a dorsal hump and gives me a really strange look. Is this something that goes down as it doesn't feel like normal tissue swelling?

It's too early to tell.

Thank you very much for enquire. It's too early to make value judgments with 10 days after a rhinoplasty. Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity. In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months. To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
