What procedures can I do to either remove my dorsal hump or make it less noticeable? (photos)

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,

Addressing a small dorsal hump
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.

What procedures can I do to either remove my dorsal hump or make it less noticeable?
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.
