Male rhinoplasty for dorsal hump removal and deviated septum repair
The rhinoplasty procedure would involve changing the shape of the nose for cosmetic purposes which would include dorsal hump reduction by shaving down the cartilage and bony hump, medial and lateral osteotomies will straighten and narrow the nasal bones. Trimming the nasal spine will also help de-project the nose and tuck the columella upwards and inwards. Also important to release the depressor septi ligament which pulls the tip downwards when smiling.

Male Nose Rhinoplasty Decisions
- Your second picture from the left shows a nice side profile view and well shaped tip-- not to much to do, if anything!.
- It appears from the first photo that on smiling the tip plunges. This can be corrected with common tip rhinoplasty procedures.
- Regarding your diagnosis of a "tension nose" or enlarged anterior nasal spine, it seems you are well-versed in some very specific anatomical terms.
- Though it is always tough to tell from photos only, if any thing, I would focus on a small dorsal reduction and tip support and shaping. This will give you a subtle result with drastic changes. I would recommend against bone removal at the base of the nose unless the problem is profoundly noticeable.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon 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.
