Injections with fillers can help a nasal bump

Injections with fillers are very useful to non-surgically camouflage a nasal bump. In my practice we call this a "non-surgical nose job." Without seeing a picture of you, it is not possible to say if this is a good solution for your problem, especially if the rib cartilage graft is warped.

The weird shape might be a warped rib graft. Rib grafts can warp over time. This should not be difficult to revise. I would not recommend injecting anything to revise this.
