2 months ago I had open rhinoplasty and now there are hard bumps on my nose. When I push them they temporarily flatten out..will they resolve in time?

Dear Sabsoob,

It is difficult to determine via internet what you are feeling and what area  the "bumps"occur.  Possible healing  or resolving depends on where the bumps are located either dorsum or tip, whether it is cartilage or bone? A good examination by your treating surgeon should answer this question for you. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
