Thank you for your question.
You are a good candidate for a closed rhinoplasty procedure to reduce the hump on your nasal dorsum. This technique is less invasive than the open rhinoplasty procedure, therefore a quicker recovery.
Best wishes and kind regards,
Surgery is the best way to remove dorsal hump on nose
Only surgery works for your requested refinement. It is called rhinoplasty. Seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon to learn more about it.
It is possible to do both nonsurgical and surgical options to improve the appearance of your nose. Obviously a surgical rhinoplasty would remove the dorsal hump permanently. If surgery is not an option, then a nonsurgical rhinoplasty can be done to camouflage the appearance of the hump.
Permanent improvements can be accomplished with rhinoplasty surgery. The hump can be lowered slightly for a beautifully enhanced profile. Best regards
Addressing a small dorsal hump
Dorsal humps is a common feature rhinoplasty patients which to address.
It's challenging for patient's with small dorsal humps, because they still need surgery if they want to permanently address the hump.
The hump is not an isolated structure. It is related to the area above it (radix) as well as the tip position. Rhinoplasty is about creating balance to the nose in relationship to the face.
It's best to have an in person consultation with a rhinoplasty surgeon who can evaluate your nose by physical exam and photographs to determine the safest treatment options available to you.
Surgical rhinoplasty for dorsal hump removal
A surgical rhinoplasty is required to remove the dorsal hump, since it is composed of both bone and cartilage. Once the dorsal hump has been removed, osteotomies of the nasal bones are then required to close the open roof created from the hump removal. For many examples and more information, please see the video and the link below
Options For A Dorsal Hump Include A Relatively Easy Surgery Or Even Easier Injections
You have 2 options.The first would be to smooth the hump surgically. This could likely be done in an office setting with a local anesthetic and a very small amount of sedation. The incisions would all be inside the nose. Depending on the size of the hump when seen in person, it's possible you may not even have any bruising.You would likely look very good within 10 days.the second option, although not permanent, would be to use a small amount of injectable filler above and below the hump to give your nose a nice smooth appearance.This literally takes several minutes to do and can last oftentimes for more than a year. Good luck.
What procedures can I do to either remove my dorsal hump or make it less noticeable?
Hyaluronic fillers can elevate the
depressed area and produce a modest cosmetic improvement. They generally last
6-9 months. Micro-fat grafts are a more permanent filler, but require a more
involved procedure. There are synthetic permanent fillers, but most plastic
surgeons would warn against using them, especially in the nasal area because of
the long term potential complications. The most reliable and permanent result can be achieved with an artistically performed conservative natural appearing rhinoplasty.
Keep in mind that following advice
from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do
based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your
tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and
discussing the pros and cons of each procedure would not be in your best
interest. I would suggest that you find a surgeon certified by the American
Board of American Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The
American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are
comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

In select cases, a non-surgical rhinoplasty may lead to improvement of a small nasal dorsal hump.
In our practice, many patients with small dorsal humps may consider microdroplet Silikon-1000 treatments, an off-label filler for permanent results.
Hope this helps you.
if you are looking for a permanent solution, I'm afraid that surgery is the safest and only way to accomplish that. Permanent fillers such as silicone can be dangerous around that area. A non-permanent filler such as restylane or juvederm work great, however, they will only last about 9 months to a year on the nose.
