After rubbing my nose alot, skin on upper nose feels slightly swollen(not noticeable by looking). Some tenderness, but bone feels stable. Nose broken?

After rubbing my nose alot, skin on upper nose feels slightly swollen(not noticeable by looking). Some tenderness, but bone feels stable. Nose broken?

Skin irritation: Rubbing one's nose should not cause a fracture (broken nose). It usually requires a fairly hard hit on the nose or nasal bridge to cause a fracture. What you are describing sounds like skin irritation and some minimal trauma from the rubbing. It may also be due to whatever is causing you to rub your nose so much. ...Read more

How long can swelling last after deviated septum surgery? My nose has a small bump on the bridge that feels hard like bone. Could it be swelling?

How long can swelling last after deviated septum surgery? My nose has a small bump on the bridge that feels hard like bone. Could it be swelling?

Possibly: followup w/your surgeon As a general rule for my patients I say that 80% of swelling is gone after 2 weeks & 90% is gone after 2 months, but really more like 6 weeks. That being said-a bump on the bridge of the nose should not be from septal surgery. The septum is in the middle of your nose & surgery to the nasal dorsum/nasal bridge is more from rhinoplasty or septorhinoplasty. f/u w ur surgeon ...Read more

Internal splint: Check with your doctor. Many use internal splints that can be seen in your nostril. This is nothing to worry about. If it is eroding through the skin you need to see your surgeon immediately, because it needs to be removed. ...Read more

Will my nose look different after having deviated septum surgery?

Will my nose look different after having deviated septum surgery?

Usually not.: Unless you specifically request (and pay for) cosmetic changes to your nose, deviated septum surgery corrects the internal deformity of your septum. Severe septal injury can also involve externally-visible nasal deformity, and proper repair may involve more than septoplasty alone--this would be called septo-rhinoplasty, and is often considered reconstructive and not cosmetic in nature. ...Read more

Small solid white lump 1cm up inside nostril on skin. First noticed after rhinoplasty 10 years ago! What could it be?

Small solid white lump 1cm up inside nostril on skin. First noticed after rhinoplasty 10 years ago! What could it be?

Rhinoplasty Lump: You should consult with your rhinoplasty surgeon. Lumps after surgery can be from scar tissue, permanent sutures, cartilage grafts or just the new shape of your tip cartilage. If the lump is painless and not growing, then it is likely benign. However, any new lumps in the nose must be evaluated to insure it is nothing dangerous. The best person to do this is your rhinoplasty surgeon. ...Read more
