   There is not a standard in these cases, and you will have to ask your surgeon.

Bumps after rhinoplasty

Small bumps can often be shaved in the office using a large guage needle inserted through the skin.  Larger bumps require rasping or shaving and are most commonly done under general anesthesia via a closed rhinoplasty approach.
