The hump on the nose is composed of mostly cartilage and some bone,and is shaved down when a hump removal is performed. Osteotomies will be required to close the open roof deformity created from the hump removal. Also important to make sure the tip is balanced with a new bridge line.

The hump can be removed with a closed rhinoplasty.
Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
