Rhinoplasty is undoubtedly one of the most popular, well-known forms of cosmetic surgery. Famous individuals, as well as individuals who are not famous, have had the procedure done to correct a wide range of nasal deformities.
It only stands to reason that a person will want to correct the appearance of their nose. Your nose is one of the most prominent parts of your face. If your nose is too big or too small, it can throw off the rest of your face. Additionally, since your nose sits right in the middle of your face, if it is not symmetrical, it can drastically affect the way you look.
One of the biggest complaints that people have about their noses is having a huge bump. And while it is true that rhinoplasty can address this hump, there are some things that you will need to consider prior to having the procedure performed.
First of all, is the hump on your nose because of excess bone, excess cartilage, or a combination of both? What is surprising to many is that not all bumps on the bridge of the nose are the same. Some are made from cartilage while others are made from bone on the upper part and cartilage on the bottom part. Some people only have the hump on the bony part of the bridge of their nose, while others may have a hump because of excess cartilage. Oftentimes, the source of the hump will determine the technique the surgeon will use to remove it.
Another question to ask yourself is, to what extent do you want to have the hump removed? In most cases, the hump on the bridge of your nose is not affecting your health in any way. It is being removed for purely aesthetic reasons. So, how much you have the hump removed will have a lot to do with your personal taste as well as what you and our cosmetic surgeon see as aesthetically pleasing.
During a consultation with our surgeon, you may be able to see what your face will look like with the different levels of hump reduction. This will give you a rough idea of how you will look after the procedure. Some patients opt to keep a little bit of the hump on their nose with the goal of maintaining a family feature or maintaining a feature that is connected to their ethnicity. Our surgeon will work with you to determine what is going to look the most natural for your face.
