Cut on nose after Rhinoplasty
The best thing to do is consult with your surgeon and show him/her the problem. I hope you get excellent results!
The person to best answer your question is your surgeon. The area that you have circled in your photo is not a normal site for a rhinoplasty incision. Many years ago, surgeons used transcutaneous (incisions on the skin) to address the bridge of the nose. This is highly unlikely in your case. This may be a scratch and not necessarily an incision but I would give your surgeon the benefit of the doubt and simply ask.
Best of luck and regards.
