Hump 9 Months after Rhinoplasty

Swelling may have masked the hump that was present after your surgery . After 9 months this will not change significantly; your sureon can easily remove this residual hump.

Hump return 9 months after rhinoplasty.

Sometimes as the swelling subsides, there is a small hump present. Your surgeon can file it down under local as a minor procedure. Otherwise, get a second opinion from an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.

Hump returns

Hard to say without photos.  However, swelling initially can camouflage the nose and as that subsides, a small hump may be noticeable.
