Does the Hump Significantly Affect the Dorsum's Profile Shape?
I had a Rhinoplasty about two months ago and am generally satisfied with the results. I had my tip narrowed and slightly elevated, nose bones straightened (broke my nose years ago), and the hump reduced. The swelling has decreased very quickly and most of the narrowing has already taken place.
I went in to the surgery not bothered with my hump and only agreed to get it reduced when my doctor advised that the profile would look unattractive, and that the hump would be more visible with a narrowed nose. I understand from the answers I received to my previous question that it is rare for patients to request to keep a little bit of the hump.
I had not researched hump rhinoplasty before my surgery, as I was not really concerned with it. I couldn't even recognize where the hump exactly was, because the other irregularities in my nose were more visible. My doctor said that my hump was at the top of my nose and not at the lower half of the bridge. So now I wonder, does the little hump that I still have, located at the top of my nose, affect the lower part of the dorsum? I am slightly bothered with my profile, as it curves a bit. Does this relate to the hump, or tip projection? I appreciate any help.
