Rhinoplasty operations, some of works such as bone breaking and nasal bone shaping operations are performed. In addition, very important cartilages are located just below the nasal bone and in determining the shape of the nose. During nasal aesthetic surgery, it is very important to keep the nose back smooth.

Despite all this; many factors such as new healing areas in bone tissue, suture reactions in the subcutaneous tissues, skin reactions can cause temporary or permanent roughness on the nasal dorsum.

In some patients, temporary small red skin spots may appear after the surgery. That is, except for surgical trauma; healing tissues of the patient may also cause roughening of the nose. Performing traumatic surgery (removal of the bone membrane, pressing the skin too often, leaving the nasal bone in a rough manner ...), overuse of non-absorbed sutures may facilitate the removal of small protrusions on the nose.

I recommend patients to have a nose massage from week 1. Especially in the second week the symmetrical nose massage; after the second week, I recommend offering massages depending on the regions where edema is high. In this way, roughness on the nose may be reduced.

Sometimes near-bone bumps may be evident on the bridge of the nose in the first few weeks. Apart from personal wound healing features; Smoking and contact with sunlight can facilitate this situation. Usually these projections in a few months is becoming self be visible.

Causes of Bumps on the Bridge of the Nose After Rhinoplasty

Several factors can contribute to the development of bumps on the bridge of the nose postoperatively:

1. Bone or Cartilage Irregularities

During rhinoplasty, the surgeon may perform osteotomies (bone cuts) or cartilage reshaping to achieve the desired nasal contour. However, subtle irregularities or asymmetries in the bone or cartilage can sometimes develop, leading to bumps or ridges along the nasal bridge.

2. Scar Tissue Formation

The body's natural healing response following rhinoplasty can result in the formation of scar tissue along the nasal dorsum. Excessive scar tissue formation or inadequate scar remodeling may contribute to the appearance of bumps or irregularities on the nose.

3. Poor Surgical Technique

In some cases, bumps on the bridge of the nose may result from errors in surgical technique, such as improper bone or cartilage manipulation, inadequate tissue dissection, or asymmetric tissue removal.

4. Underlying Nasal Structure

Pre-existing nasal asymmetries or structural abnormalities, such as a deviated septum or dorsal hump, may contribute to the development of bumps on the bridge of the nose following rhinoplasty.

5. Inadequate Healing

Poor wound healing or insufficient tissue support during the postoperative period can lead to the development of irregularities or bumps on the nasal bridge.

Prevention Strategies for Bumps on the Bridge of the Nose

1. Selecting an Experienced Surgeon

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience in rhinoplasty can help minimize the risk of postoperative complications, including bumps on the nasal bridge.

2. Comprehensive Preoperative Assessment

Thorough preoperative evaluation, including detailed nasal analysis and discussion of surgical goals and expectations, is crucial for identifying potential risk factors and planning an appropriate surgical approach.

3. Open Communication

Maintaining open and honest communication with your surgeon throughout the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods is essential for addressing any concerns or questions and ensuring optimal surgical outcomes.

4. Smoking and exposure to intense sunlight may cause asymmetric protrusions on the nose!

Excessive smoking and exposure to sunlight in the early period after the rhinoplasty operation may cause exaggerated healing tissue production and increased edema. For this reason, it is normal for the most tissue to be produced in the places on the nose that are exposed to the most surgical trauma. It is especially important for patients with dark skin and a high risk of scar development to pay attention to their surgeon's care recommendations.

The use of minimally traumatic devices such as ultrasonic devices and microdrills as bone shaping tools can reduce the production of excessive healing tissue (bone healing tissue "callus") and excessive edema after surgery. "Nose taping" techniques during early sleep can also reduce the appearance of protruding appearances on the dorsum of the nose.

4. Compliance with Postoperative Instructions

Adhering to postoperative instructions provided by your surgeon, including activity restrictions, nasal care protocols, and follow-up appointments, is vital for promoting proper healing and minimizing the risk of complications.

Bumps on the bridge of the nose after rhinoplasty can be distressing for patients and may impact both aesthetic outcomes and functional results. Understanding the potential causes, treatment options, and prevention strategies for these bumps is essential for patients considering or undergoing rhinoplasty surgery.
