Bumps on nasal bridge after rhinoplasty
It is understandable that you are concerned. Changes after rhinoplasties vary with every patient and what you are experiencing is not uncommon especially that swelling takes time to subside as it masks the results of your surgery.
Since you are able to depress those bumps is promising. Exploring steroid injections as an option with your surgeon may not be a bad idea.
It is important to keep in mind that it is early to pass a judgment. Usually, a year is required before formulating how your nose will be, but longer with a thick skin. Even then, your nose will keep shaping itself to complement your face for better results in the years to come.
My best recommendation at the moment is to be patient, keep communicating with your surgeon and work as a team together to achieve the best results possible.
Congratulations on your surgery and remain positive!
