A rhinoplasty should smooth out your nose. Discuss your concerns with a board certified plastic surgeon who is well experienced in rhinoplasty.

  Hump removal and bridge refinement are common rhinoplasty requests.  Find a rhinoplasty expert.

Rhinoplasty for smoothing out the bridge line after nasal trauma

+2
Trauma to the nose can create fractures of both the bone and the cartilage along the bridge line. It can also create irregularities across the bridge and the sidewalls. To remove any dorsal irregularities along the bridge,   they must be filed down. Osteotomies of the nasal bones are required to reset a nasal fracture. Cartilaginous spreader grafts harvested from inside the nose are required to support inwardly fractured concave upper lateral cartilages. For many examples, please see the link below

Many changes are possible with a rhinoplasty. Specific changes can only be recommended with good pictures and finally a physical examination.
