Dorsal hump early after rhinoplasty
I think you may have answered your own question: it is very early indeed. The ultimate goal is to achieve an ideal contour, perfectly straight and smooth. Very few patients achieve this, frankly. Most have some very minor imperfection to their outcome. However, early on these tend to be more obvious. You may find, like many, that with additional time (and possible a month or two of massage) this area will settle down very nicely. I find that this is usually the case, and it can take a month or two in that area of the nose (longer in others). In the end, the results are usually quite good; the odds remain high that you will be very satisfied.
