What is Nasal Hump Reduction?

Dorsum hump (hump on bridge of the nose) can give a fierce and mean look, so it should be corrected. Since profile view is as important as the frontal view, nasal hump can give a negative impression. The nasal hump reduction should be performed with various surgical techniques to create the smooth and soft nose dorsum.

Precise Osteotomy and Correction / Nasal Hump Reduction

Selection of Surgical Techniques upon Severity of Nasal Hump
If only the dorsal hump is slightly protruded, simple carving with rasping can correct the condition. If the hump of the nose is severe, the overall bone structure must be remodeled after excising the cartilage and bone. Moreover, moderate sized hump can be improved with excising cartilage and bone.
Nose with dorsal hump often comes with an arrow shape. In this case, the septal cartilage is adjusted, pulled together or raised to correct the overall nose shape creating a fresh look.

Special Features of the Nasal Hump Reduction


Small Nose with Low Dorsal Height

If the nose is small and its dorsum is low, additional surgical procedure is required to elevate the nasal dorsum using nasal implant material such as silicone.


The one with a Severe Nasal Hump and Droopy Eyebrows

It is possible to carve out the protruded section and then raise the nose dorsum with an implant or elevate the nasal bridge with autologous cartilage graft or dermis graft.


Large Nose with Large Dorsal Hump

In this case, reduction rhinoplasty should be performed. The hump is removed and osteotomy is done to pull nasal bone together and lower the height of the area between the eyebrows or reduce the length of the nose.
