Bump should improve with time
As time passes, the bump should smooth out. Daily massage will also help break up the scar tissue to flatten it. If it has not improved after a couple months, there are treatments that can help give you a better cosmetic look, like kenalog injections or laser resurfacing. I know it can be tough, but give it some more time. Hang in there!
Short answer - yes. The fullness should improve with time and massage and will most likely end with an acceptable result. There are many ways to correct a defect such as this including skin grafting and a variety of local flaps.
