Tiny bump tip of nose

Hello, it has been a year and a half since my rhinoplasty and just recently I developed a tiny bump at the very tip of my nose. Also, one side of my nose has an indentation and the other does not. Why has this happened and what exactly is the tiny bump? Than you!

Procedure: Rhinoplasty
Location: Melrose Park, IL

It could be any number of things from a small cyst to possible a piece of cartilage to some other type of skin lesion. One side of the nose or face is almost never completely symmetrical with the other side before or after surgery. Visit your surgeon for an exam.

It's maybe a pieces of cartilage or other materials from tip plasty surgery. Please ask your surgeon for any treatment plan.
