If I remove the bump on my bridge with local? (photo)

I had primary surgery 7 months ago. I will have revision on June... If I get the bump on my bridge shaved down with local anesthesia in two months, can i still have my major revision surgery in june? or do i still need to wait till NEXT june if shaving bump counts like a "revision" too?

This may be OK, but I would do everything at once to limit any other variables. The more times you go into a nose the more scar and the more difficult the revision.
