How Often Do Doctors Get Hump Reduction Requests?
I recently had a rhinoplasty done about two months ago. The doctor did a fine job on everything I requested. My nagging concern relates to my hump.
Before the surgery, the hump wasn't a big issue for me, as I was more concerned with the tip and bone structure (I had previously broken my nose). As I mentioned, these were all taken care of perfectly, but the hump is now annoying me a bit. It is a bit more apparent now because the bridge is thinner and not hidden by all that cartilage. I decided not to completely remove the hump initially because I felt it would feminize my nose and remove some genetic characteristics. I'm not so sure now.
After the surgery, the doctor told me that I was one of the few who request a reduction of the hump, as opposed to a removal. Would this apply to you guys as well? I examined various before/after cases of hump rhinoplasties and many were described as hump reductions, rather than removals. The doctors would leave comments such as "moderate reduction of hump" or "conservative reduction". There were quite a few cases of these, so is my doctor just the exception? Thanks for your time and hope to hear from you guys!
Hump reduction and removal are the same
