Dorsal Hump

Dorsal hump rhinoplasty is a technique used to remove a hump from the bridge of the nose. If you have a nasal bump like this and are looking for a change, consider learning more about this corrective surgical procedure.

A dorsal hump rhinoplasty operation can be performed using either closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty. Closed rhinoplasty involves the creation of incisions in the nostril area. Because of this, the scars that result from it will be hidden. Open rhinoplasty, on the other hand, features external incisions that allow lifting of the skin for greater access. The scars from this, though more visible than closed rhinoplasty scars, will still be quite small.

To set up a consultation, contact our office. Your nose will be evaluated, and your plastic surgeon will determine which rhinoplasty techniques will work best for your dorsal hump correction. Once you have discussed the options, your plastic surgeon will create a surgical plan.
