I have a big bump on my nose that is slanted to one side. I'm only 14 years old but have noticed this for 2 to 3 years now. My profile on my left side shows my nose to be straight, but on my right side shows that my nose has a massive bump. This makes me so insecure even though I'm still quite young. What should I do?
How Do I Fix a Bump on my Nose That is Slanted to One Side?

Slanted Bump on Nose
The bump can be removed and the asymmetrical nose corrected with rhinoplasty surgery. We want to operate on patients that are physically and mentally mature. For a lady this usually means we consider rhinoplasty surgery beginning at age 15-16, but I have operated on patients like you. At age 14 you will need the support of your parents.
