Nasal anatomy question
There are two possibilities that you feel with your finger. It is either your medical crura or bilateral septal deviation at the floor of your nose. An examination will determine the cause.
Rhinoplasty anatomy and septum
- It is likely the sides of your septum where it meets the floor of the nose
- It can be shown to you in the office with a light and mirror
- If they are not causing you problems, I would just leave them alone
It's obviously hard to know where exactly you are referring to but if you're feeling near the midline it might be possible that you are feeling the end of the medial crura. These are part of the support cartilages of your tip and are occasionally adjusted during surgery.
I would recommend pointing out the area in question to your surgeon simply to ease your mind. Good luck!
Rhinoplasty anatomical question
You might be feeling your turbinates on the outer wall of your nose or it might be a change in the septal bone or cartilage. Either way, this should not be an issue for you especially if your surgeon is not concerned. I hope this information is helpful for you.

It is kind of tough to imagine where you are describing but I think you may be feeling near the midline along the floor of the nose which would be the nasal spine. This can be slightly widened and you may just be more aware of it since surgery. I would recommend pointing it out to your doctor with something like a q-tip directly, so they can see what you are talking about.
Best of luck
