How Does a Dorsal Hump Usually Reduced?
I've been considering getting a Rhinoplasty to fix the hump on my nose, but I was wondering, what exactly does the surgeon do to correct this? I've been looking up on dorsal hump reductions and I am not quite sure what open and closed Rhinoplasty's are, as well as the term "breaking the bones." What I want to know is: what would the surgeon do to correct this. I have included my photo for your reference.
Rhinoplasty for Removal of a Dorsal Hump
Hump would be removed and nasal bones narrowed
Dorsal hump reduction rhinoplasty
Dorsal hump reduction is done through bone and cartilage reduction
My 2 cents
Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery
Reduction of a hump is a common part of rhinoplasty
Bump is addressed with Cartilage and bone reduction
The nasal hump is actually not your main problem.
