I am scheduled for touch up rhinoplasty soon. Can the bumps on the edge of my nose be fixed?

The plan, as you've described it, doesn't sound so good to me.
But, I don't see that rasping would do anything at all. I'm surprised that in sooooo many posts on RealSelf, people talk about "rasping" as a way of fixing problems from a previous rhinoplasty. Of course, it's because their doctors said that rasping was the answer. "Rasping" fixes very little, especially in a revision. Seems to me that the nasal bones need to be brought closer to each other where they meet, along the bridge of the nose. Rasping won't give you a bump-free triangular contour to your nasal bones.
Sorry to throw a wrench into things, but you asked. That's my two cents.
Rhinoplasty, bumps, and rasping
Hope this helps!
