Thank you for your inquiry!
It seems that you are a good candidate
for a corrective rhinoplasty that will improve the way your nose looks to complement your
facial features in a natural fashion. I would not be surprised if you had breathing problems as well. However, without a physical
examination it is not possible to provide you with specific details. I highly
recommend that you schedule a consultation with a well-experienced surgeon.
It is important to mention that the
finest cosmetic results in any particular case are based on a variety of
factors, including: the unique anatomy of the patient, realistic expectations,
a well-informed and detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon concerning
the best options for you especially covering a deep understanding of the pros
and cons of any given choice you will adopt.
Please keep in mind that following the
advice from a surgeon online who offers to tell you what to do without a
physical examination covering the nature and the status of the tissue,
assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing
the pros and cons of each operative solution would not be in your best
interest. With that in mind, it is the safest and for your best interest to
find a plastic surgeon with solid experience and certified by the American
Board of Plastic Surgery who is ideally a member of the American Society of
Plastic Surgeons that you will trust and be comfortable with. You should
discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

The rhinoplasty procedure involves shaving down the dorsal hump which is composed of both bone and cartilage. osteotomies of the nasal bones are also required to narrow the bridge line.
You are an excellent candidate for simple rasping of the dorsal nasal hump. In our office we do this with a little oral sedation and local anesthesia. You will look fantastic and be fully healed in less than one week. I think your nose is otherwise nice enough to leave as is without tip work or dorsal bone breaking
It depends.........................I am assuming that you are not happy with your bump and that you are desirous of an improvement by removing it. IMHO you have the potential to have a very attractive nose not just by bringing down the hump but by slight shortening of the overall nasal length. You look young and need to realize that as we age there is a tendency for the tip to drop towards the upper lip. It also depends on the surgeon you eventually choose to do your surgery. Please understand that nasal surgery ( rhinoplasty) is one of the most, if not the most complex surgery in cosmetic surgery. The end point needs to be an attractive nose without loss of function. What good is it for your nose to look good if you can't breathe properly? The slightest little error, left over bone, unequal removal of cartilage, etc will be readily visible. Always seek out the opinion of a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic surgery with extensive experience in cosmetic nasal surgery. Request to see plenty of before and after photos of the surgeon and ask if you can speak to his/her previous patients. Good luck on your journey
The hump can be reduced and the septum, addressed to produce a more streamlined nose.

You are a very good candidate for rhinoplasty. Your nose will be significantly improved as well as your breathing.
You need to schedule an in person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in noses, look at his/hers Before and After Gallery.
Your nose will look much more attractive after a rhinoplasty and you will be able to breathe much better as well. You need to see a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon and make sure the nose is not overdone.
Many thanks for the question.The answer to your question is to find a nose surgeon who can discuss your nose with photo animation images which means the expected post surgery shape can be discussed and shown to you as photo corrected pictures so that in advance you know if you are going to like the results or not.This is what I do in my practice in Dubai.
I wish you all the best.
Your bump can be removed but I need to see a picture of your profile to determine the positioning of the dorsum.
