Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Would Filing Down the Dorsal Hump Be Suitable to Improve the Profile of my Nose?
I'm unhappy with the profile of my nose. (I don't have a problem with it face on.) I'm asking whether i appear to be suitable for such a procedure, what the risks are, and whether filing/rasping the nose is usually cheaper than a rhinoplasty that involves breaking bones. I have read that 'shaving down a bony hump may cause a flattened appearance which will then need to be infractured to close the the "open" roof.' Would this all be done in one session?
