Curious about causes of bump in nose and prominent chin. How to fix the tip of nose, nostril, & bump? (photo)

Combined rhinoplasty & genioplasty
Nose: Rhinoplasty to remove the bump, address any deviation (which may require a septoplasty and spreader grafts), nostril balancing and improving the drooping of the tip.
Chin: There are two options. 1. Segmental, posterior sliding genioplasty. The bone is cut and repositioned father back. This technique allows correction of any vertical excess. The procedure does not affect your teeth. 2. Shaving back of the chin bone directly, without any cuts in the bone.
An in person exam will determine the detailed approach for each surgery. Both are usually performed at the same time.

How can you try to fix the tip of the nose, nostril and bump??!!
Has there been an injury or previous surgery? Whether a full open rhinoplasty would be necessary or a less invasive approach would work would be determined by a more critical analysis either by an in person exam or better photos. Correction of an over projecting chin is best corrected by bony genioplasty without disconnecting the soft tissue from the bone at the apex of the chin and repositioning the bone conservatively. Again, standard photos and/or an in person visit would be a better way to evaluate this.
One has to avoid losing the soft tissue support to avoid a witch's chin deformity where the tip of the chin hangs down.
