How to Shave Down a Dorsal Hump?
I have a small dorsal bump.Since I have had a nasal fracture,it has become more prominent.I would now like to have it removed.However,I greatly fear that my surgeon will shave too much bone off my bridge.I really love all about my nose,even the slope of the bridge at most angles.However,at one point,the bump appears more "pointy".I would like to have this removed,but my I constantly fear getting bridge that has been filed down too much.What do you think and what should I tell my surgeon?
