Nose Concerns after Septoplasty
It is actually normal for one side of the nose to heal better / faster than the other during the early post-op period. From the photo, it doesn't look like you have a hematoma or an abcess so there is no need for immedicate concern.
The bump on the right side may be caused by early granulation tissue from the healing wound which may be caused by focal inflammation or infection.
