Options for bump on nose

A large bump on the nose needs to be removed through a rhinoplasty procedure.  Once the large bump is removed osteotomies need to be performed to narrow the nasal bones.  This prevents an open roof deformity or a square top nose.  Any other adjustments in the nose can be performed at the same time if needed.  It is also important to address any internal breathing problems from a fractured septum or deviated septum.

Rhinoplasty will solve this for you. Just remember that although you may only be concerned about the bump at this time, after you fix it other areas will become more noticeable so they have to be addressed as well.

Bump on nose

your bump may or may not be caused by the injury - the face and nose still grow after age 13 - and it may have been destined for that look regardless -the good news is that you should be able to improve that with rhinoplasty

If you have a nasal bump and it is crooked after sustaining trauma to the nose, then you can certainly have a rhinoplasty to correct the deformity.

Nasal hump

You need a rhinoplasty to correct your nasal hump. The problem may or may not have anything to do with your previous fracture.  If you have breathing problems, they may be corrected at the same time.  Have a board certified surgeon to have an evaluation.  I am sure you can achieve  an improvement in your nose.  Donald R.
