Residual dorsal hump following rhinoplasty
You are never "stuck" with results. Thankfully, most things in plastic surgery are correctable. Occasionally, revision surgery is necessary. But in your case, it is a bit too early to judge. Be sure to voice concerns with your doctor. Hope this helps.

If you just got the bandages off, I suspect you are still very early in the healing process. From the single photo you submitted it is difficult to determine if this is a result of swelling or a residual hump. Alternatively, it could be from too much resection in the area of the upper nose and between the eyes called the radix
I recommend that you review your concerns with your surgeon to determine if this will resolve.
