I hate the bump and would love to have it removed to make it straight. Would Rhinoplasty change the shape of my nose? (photo)

If you remove the hump, will your nose change? Its all perspective...
Your nose is the same. An artistic surgeon can look at your nose and see, if I change the hump will it then alter the perspective and make the tip look big? Personally, its difficult to tell in these photo's but I would be concerned about that.
I often tell patients that a good rhinoplasty is more than just removing a hump, its looking at the whole face. It would be a shame to trade a big bump for a big tip or a "long" appearing nose.
What I tend to do here in Ottawa, Canada is use digital imaging. I adjust JUST the hump and you can see what it looks like in standard photographs. Its a great way to communicate our expectations.
I hope this answer helps a bit and hopefully allows you to ask some questions when you meet with a surgeon over there in England!

Bump on nose
reducing the hump on your nose, smoothing the dorsum and creating a softer contour are frequent goals of rhinoplasty surgery. In some cases the shape and position of the nasal tip may be altered, if this is requested. All your questions should be addressed and satisfactorily answered during your first consultation.
