Since i was 11 i had ran into a wall pretty hard and since then I've had a bump on my nose. My nose is average size but the bump is on the top of my nose and is a pain since i wear glasses. Would it be possible to get my nose back to normal as in have some type of surgery? If so what would it be called and would it be possible to be done in one visit?

Trauma buckles and posterior displaced the cartilage of your nose. The hump at the junction of the bone and cartilage is the result of trauma. You will need the cartilage portion of the nose advanced forward with minimal bone removal of the bump. You would also benefit from a chin implant to harmonize your face.

Rhinoplasty for nasal hump
Absolutely, a rhinoplasty can help improve the appearance of your nose and remove the nasal hump. The goal with rhinoplasty is to fix the nose with only one surgery. However, we cannot always control the way the patient heals, which is why a touch up may sometimes be necessary even if the procedure is performed properly by a skilled specialist. From here, I would recommend a consultation with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist. He or she may use computer imaging software to give you an idea of how the final result may appear. I think you would be really happy with the outcome, and I wish you the best of luck!
Nose bump causes pain when wearing eyeglasses.
The bump on your nose can be improved with a surgical procedure called rhinoplasty. Wearing glasses will be more comfortable once the hump is smoothed. Good Luck.

Rhinoplasty for the broken nose involves resetting the nose and grafting your own cartilage from your septum over the depressed parts of your nose.
A rhinoplasty to remove the bump and harmonize your nose would be the best and most long lasting solution. This would require consultation to determine what you are looking for, out patient surgery and recovery (usually about a week). good luck!
Rhinoplasty will help
You pictures are very helpful. You will need to have rhinoplasty to reduce the dorsal bump and also elevate the tip. Morphing soft ware before surgery can be helpful.
