Bumps months after rhinoplasty are rare.
I am sorry to hear about your issues following Rhinoplasty
surgery. In general local reactions to dissolvable sutures can occur or possibly
a reaction to a permanent suture. An actual in person exam would be needed to
tell but I would advise you to first check back with your surgeon to be sure.
Good luck and I hope this helps.
Thank you for your question!
It is understandable that you are
concerned. Changes after rhinoplasties vary with
every patient and what you are experiencing is normal especially that swelling
takes time to subside as it masks the results of your surgery.
With the picture posted and without a physical exam it is not
possible to provide you with a definitive medical answer.
My best recommendation at the moment is
to communicate with your surgeon and work as a team together to achieve the best
Congratulations on your surgery!

It could be many different things and is best evaluated in person. Based upon symptoms, in-office evaluation, and history the diagnosis should be made.
Please tell me that you have already called your surgeon. Don't take medical advice from strangers on the internet.
What is this bump inside my nostril? (photos)
This could be a small cyst, localized infection or displaced piece of cartilage. You should discuss it with your surgeon as soon as you can.
From the photo it looks like a small abscess has developed. There may be a suture that may have become infected. Follow up with your surgeon as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can have your surgeon call in some oral antibiotics and start warm compresses to the area.
