Is a bump on the bridge of my nose common after sinus surgery and septoplasty?

Exactly one year ago I had surgery performed on sinuses and a septoplasty. I now have a bump pretty high up on my nose. Is this normal? Is this something my doctor should fix or is it common to get after the surgery?

Bump on the nose after septoplasty

If the septum is reduced and shifts you can sometimes have it settle lower in the nose which can cause the nasal bones to look more prominent. You may also be noticing your nose more and be seeing a subtle bump that your didn't notice before.
