Remaining bump after rhinoplasty
At 9 days following rhinoplasty not a lot can be said with confidence about the shape of a nose. Unfortunately rhinoplasty is a bit of a waiting game. I tell my patients 6 weeks is a good time to take stock of the results as the great majority of the swelling has receded my then in most noses.
Nasal hump permanent after rhinoplasty?
The small bump that is present on your profile photo is likely due to swelling. You will have a much better idea 3-6 months post op but I don't see any reason for concern at this point. Best.

Post Operative Rhinoplasty Concerns
You likely have normal soft tissue swelling and fullness of the nasal bone due to callus formation. Nasal bone healing for full recovery with the reduction of the callus may take 6-12 months. Be patient and follow up with your surgeon for standard post operative care.
