From a fierce look to a soft and gentle look!

What is Humped Nose Correction (Dorsal Reduction/Humpectomy)?

Recreate your image, beautiful with soft facial features, with a nose hump correction.

A humped nose (nose bump, dorsal nose hump) is when the nose has a raised bump on the nasal bridge and, sometimes, a drooping or sharp nose tip that can give off a fierce or angry impression. Humpectomy creates a beautiful and smooth nose by removing the bump on nasal bone and cartilages and lifting up the low nose tip.

JW Plastic Surgery provides the most suitable nose hump correction procedure, considering your nose shape and conditions. Not only does our humped nose correction smoothes the nasal bridge it also corrects a wide nasal bridge. We’ll sculpt a slim and beautiful nose.

We recommend Hump nose correction to the following people:

  • Those who give off an overly strong impression and seem older than their actual age due to a long nose tip.

JW’s Hump Nose Correction

#1 | A Bump on Nasal Bridge

A hump bridge consists of nasal bones and cartilages. We can correct a hump nose by cutting hump on nasal bones and cartilages. Excessive removal or insufficient correction can lead to curvature, so it is vital to operate by well-experienced, skilled medical professionals, and board-certified plastic surgery specialists.

#2 | The Open Roof of the Nose

Since the nasal bones are fragile, removing bones could expose the cavities. If the opening is small and unnoticeable, it may be left as it is. However, if it’s wide or noticeable, it needs to be covered to avoid it being felt or noticed.


Nasal Bridge Augmentation

Silicone or Gore-Tex can be placed over the bridge to make a beautiful and smooth nose and cover the opening.

Lateral Osteotomy

Lateral osteotomy is used to close a sizeable open roof by cutting along the sides of the nasal bone vertically and then gathered to tie the open roof.

Autologous Nasal Septum Cartilage

If the patient wants neither augmentation rhinoplasty nor nasal osteotomy, an autologous nasal septum cartilage can be inserted into the roof of the nose to make a smooth nose shape.

#3 | Droopy nasal tip correction

Nasal tip correction is a procedure that raises the shape and repositions of the lateral cartilage at the tip of the nose.

The nose tip may be supported by inserting a support into the nostril (normally autogenous septal cartilage will be used), and muscle pulling the tip of the nose down may be cut to prevent the tip of the nose from sagging again after surgery.

#4 | Nasolabial Angle Correction

The correction of the nasolabial angle (columella labial angle), where the philtrum meets with the columella, is usually corrected by widening the angle only by lifting the tip of the nose (correction of the sagging tip). In some situations, an additional autologous cartilage is placed on the nasolabial angle to correct it.
