Nasal spine reduction/removal

Did anyone have their nasal spine reduced/removed as part of their rhinoplasty. Did it have the effect of raising the base of the nose?

Hi there,

By nasal "spine" do you mean the dorsum? Here's what some doctors say about filing down dorsal humps. Not sure if this is your issue, but hopefully you'll find some helpful info in the post.

Hi No not the dorsum, the nasal spine is at the base of the nose, at the top of the upper lip. I am hoping that reducing it will reduce the vertical length of the nose by raising the base of the nose. I am wondering if this is what happened for anyone who had it done.
