hmm, I`m confused Annette. I have one indent on the left side, but my bridge is going to the right. And I have a second dent on the same side (on my left nostril) and the tip is going in that direction (to the left). So the nose looks from the front looks like this shape:

Note that my left side would be the right side on the screen:


going to the right (bump on right side, dark dented area on left side),
tip going to the left (dent on left nostril and a dark strip on left tip where the nose is ``folding`` to the left).

The tip of my `triangùlar`dent is close to my bridge (based on your picture, your tip seems to be towards your cheek and the base of the triangle is close to your bridge):
l < (triangular area looking like dent mid-way on my nose)
l ° (circular dent on my nostril, plus dark strip across the left side where nose is bending to the left)

I also have an indent on my bridge but my surgeon said this is completely normal and very typical of rhinoplasty. It's where my bump was removed and although it can be felt, it can't really be seen.

It's so wierd that i came across this post cuz I just noticed today that there appears to be an indent at the top of my bridge that goes from right to left straight across...but i'm only one week post op and just got my cast off yesterday and the ps taped my nose up and told me not to remove it for 2 days so it might just be swelling or the way the tape is ( i hope!) sure feels like a dent tho

did all of us go to the same ps or something? our problems are way too similar. did anyone look into open roof deformity? im wondering if thats what i have. the flatness/indent and discoloration are the key factors .

Hi there,
I have this dent too at the top of my bridge, like a line going across from left to right, and it's soft. However, it does seem to finally be going away and I'm 4 months post-op. I had an injection at 2 months to break up scar tissue because my surgeon said the scar tissue was pulling cartilage inward and creating an indention and an illusion of a bump. Since then my bump is almost completely gone and, like I said, the indention is not even noticeable anymore, though I can still feel it with my finger a little bit and it feels soft or squishy. I'm wondering though if that's just damaged nerves or something that hasn't healed yet. I also worried about open roof deformity, but I don't think so because I'm pretty happy with my nose lately and it certainly doesn't look like I have any type of deformity. Early on I certainly thought so!
