Hard bump on left side of nasal bridge 10 days post op. Is this a callus, or a bump from swelling? Remaining bone?
Doctor Answers 5
Swelling can sometimes manifest as tender bumps.
It is difficult to tell the cause of the pain. Is it a constant pain or pain to the touch?
I hope this helps.
It is too early to tell

Congratulations on your rhinoplasty! Everyone recovers differently and it really depends on what kind of rhinoplasty you had. It sounds like you had osteotomies as well which is common and the bump you are feeling may be a "step off" between the nasal bone and the maxillary bone of the face. Sometimes osteotomies can be symmetric meaning the same on both sides, or asymmetric or different on each side. This could be a cause for differences on both sides. The most important thing is you are maintaining follow up with your plastic surgeon. Best of luck, MMT
