Had a go-around not been carried out, the next touchdown would have been considerably harder and probably would have damaged the aircraft.
If every time an aircraft bounced on landing it was inevitably followed by a series of increasingly harder runway contacts, as you seem to suggest, then most large airports would see dozens of GAs every day.
