Hard, uneven lumps & bumps high on bridge of nose & dorsum. Is this a normal and expected result of a rhinoplasty?
These areas can be reduced in closed fashion with minimal downtime and headache.
Find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties, has great reviews, and has great before and after pictures.

This is not so uncommon. Some irregularities can be perceived after rhinoplasty, and this can often be shaved down very delicately.
Nasal bump after rhinoplasty.
If you see a very experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon you can have the bump filed down under local anesthesia. This should be like going to the dentist.
Lumps on the nose after closed rhinoplasty
The lumps on your nose can be due to residual bone or cartilage on the dorsum. It is not a normal result, but one that can be corrected. This can be repaired with careful and meticulous revision surgery. I would consider seeing a rhinoplasty surgeon in your area.
