Weird swelling on top of nostrils after rhinoplasty cast removal? (Photos)
Doctor Answers 3
I am concerned looking at these photos although I need to see a view from below also and a view of your nose before surgery. If the swelling is hard then it is not just swelling but a cartilage deformity which may not settle.so you must see your surgeon soon to confirm
Lumps and Bumps after Rhinoplasty
Based on your description and photos, it is difficult to know exactly what is going on. I would recommend you contact your surgeon and go in for an evaluation. Nothing beats an in-person exam of your nose. Your surgeon should be able to guide you on what the bumps could be and the best way to get rid of them. It is also important to see your surgeon to ensure there is nothing more urgent that needs attention. Remember that some lingering swelling on the nose can persist for several weeks to months after your surgery. Six to 12 months are needed for a nose to completely heal. Best of luck!
