I'm Wanting to Reduce the Bump on Bride of Nose? (photo)

Hi. I'm wanting to reduce the bump on the bridge of my nose. Its not a huge one - only noticeable from a certain angle. But I'm noticing it more and more as I age. I am just wondering....is there a big chance of this not being done correctly, or something going wrong? I'm a bit paranoid when it comes to surgery...I just have this fear that the end result will not be what I had hoped for and that I will look worse than before. Surely things can't go too wrong on this type of procedure, right?

Treating bump on bridge

Rhinoplasty can be done to treat the bump on your bridge that you don't like. An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon shouldn't have any problems treating this, but nose surgery in general is such where you do want to do your homework in selecting a surgeon.

An experienced surgeon should be able to use preoperative computer morphing to review what kind of changes are possible and make sure they are in line with your desires.
