Post rhinoplasty bump

Your surgeon can tell if is a bony lump or scar tissue. Rasping a bony bump is quite straight forward. Ask your surgeon

Nasal bones cannot form callus. However, thick soft tissue scar tissue can form

Rhinoplasty revision

It is best to be seen in person to determine what is going on. Sometimes as the bone heals a callus can form.
