It is important to wait a full year for the result especially after rhinoplasty. The bump may be due to swelling since I'm sure your surgeon did a lot of work in that area. So far, it looks as it should.

Something NOT right. Have you seen your surgeon to discuss this issue??? Best to allow 3 months healing time...

Since you are only 1 week post op, it is too soon to see your final result.  It takes weeks to months for the swelling to settle.  Have patience, and follow up with your Plastic Surgeon as he recommends.  Best wishes!
