Nose Hump (Dorsal Hump) Removal
When the bridge of the nose curves upward, it is referred to as a dorsal hump. Both the nasal bone and cartilage in the bridge can contribute to a nose hump that can impact the profile of the nose. From slight to pronounced dorsal humps, removal of these humps is one of the most commonly requested types of rhinoplasty. Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center offers nose hump (dorsal hump) removal plastic surgery at our facility in Irving, TX.
Bumps and humps on the bridge of the nose can be altered to achieve a straighter or even slightly concave bridge, but there are intricacies to this type of rhinoplasty. Both the bone and cartilage can be sculpted to reduce the size of the dorsal hump, but considerations must be made on how well the skin will drape over the new smaller nose. Skin is not excised during nose hump removal surgery, only the material that creates the hump. Removing too much size can result in an unnatural appearance to the nose skin.
For the best results from a dorsal hump removal, it is vital to consider how the skin will reshape to the new nose. Youthful skin has better elasticity and will reform more reliably to the reduce nose size. Dr. Stefan Shuaib is a highly skilled rhinoplasty plastic surgeon that will carefully consider the best options for each patient to achieve the most attractive and natural-appearing results.
