This patient had an open approach rhinoplasty with septoplasty, and profile realignment. A less experienced surgeon may have only removed the bump but this would have brought the bridge of her nose down too low to the face. This would have left a scooped appearance on the side view and washed out appearance to the nose on the front view.
