Is Nasal Hump Reduction a Simple Procedure. I don’t want a sloping nose but something natural.

This is a question I answered for somone who wanted something natural done for their nasal hump but not much done for the nasal tip:

Rhinoplasty(Or nose shaping / nose reshaping / nose plastic surgery / nose cosmetic surgery / nose job)is a very difficult procedure especially when you need your nasal tip changed.  It is a procedure that takes years to master. I’ve been doing Rhinplasties for 8 years now and have come to respect this procedure.  It is a procedure that you need to continually improve on. Things change and techniques get better and you always need to learn the latest in the new ideas out there.

Nasal hump reduction is on the easier scale when you talk about rhinoplasty as opposed to tip work or reconstructive rhinoplasty. This is based on doing hundreds of rhinoplasties from the simplest to the most complicated including rib graft repair and complex nasal reconstruction type of procedures.  Nasal hump reduction will entail limited intranasal incisions, reduction of the hump with rasps, sometimes direct reduction with scissors, etc, and many times will entail controlled breakages of your nasal bones to readjust the bones to the smaller state.

Really importantly, you want a surgeon to discuss all of these things with you and know what you want. This is perhaps the most important step in rhinoplasty. Knowing what your patients/clients want is more than half the battle. This establishes the goals of this procedure which is essential.  So find somone who is going to listen to you!!

Through Rhinoplasty your appearance can change markedly for the better if done right!

I hope that helps!
