Thank you very much for enquire.

Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity. In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months. To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.

Bump on the nose after rhinoplasty

it is very difficult to say with certainty what is the cause of the bump. It may be mild irregularity of the tip cartilage, cartilage graft visible through the skin or a local infection/ fibrosis. There seems to be a small area of erythema (redness) around the bump which may go along with the infection etiology. I suggest you speak with your surgeon about this. If there is an infection it may need to be medically treated.
