   The profile can be markedly improved with a closed rhinoplasty. 

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Bump on bridge of nose

+1
A rhinoplasty can be performed to smooth away the bump on the bridge of her nose. However only an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon can determine the best course of treatment. Best of luck.

Dorsal reduction

+1
A significant reduction of the dorsum coupled with width reduction should give her a more attractive nose.   You can call practices to find out average pricing on this procedure.  Best wishes!
