Rhinoplasty can give a nice result
Your problem is straight forward!
Your bump, hump, curve or whatever you call it seems too much for your face. The method of removal, chisel, rasping, scissoring should not be your concern...your surgeon will do what he or she feels most comfortable with.....and your problem looks pretty routine so should be no problem.....good luck Dr. Loeb

Hi Steven, It's definitely possible to have your hump taken down carefully without too much. In fact it's important in the male rhinoplasty to always maintain a strong straight profile, as opposed to more curved, scooped look. And looking at your photos, it looks like you'd be a good candidate. You can use computer imaging to project a goal for surgery so that both you and your surgeon are on the same page for the final result. Good luck!!!
Best wishes and good luck.

Closed rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us. In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features. Respectfully,
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Only you can be the judge of whether to proceed with the cosmetic enhancement of reducing your dorsal bump. From the pictures you have provided, you certainly have dorsal bump that can be brought down. Rasping or using an osteotome are both ways to reduce the bony portion of a hump but there is also usually a cartilagenous portion that needs to be reduced. If you are interested in getting some questions answered and looking at imaging of a possible post operative result, I highly recommend a consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
All the best!
