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.
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.
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 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.
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.
In-depth examination through a three-dimensional CT analysis
Before surgery, we conduct a precise and in-depth examination through a 3D-CT analysis on the nasal bones, the shape, conditions, and size of nasal soft tissues for a safe and accurate operation.
In case of congenital nasal septum deviation or asymmetrical bones or cartilages bent by external injuries, a deviated nose could be simultaneously corrected for both aesthetic reasons and functional improvement such as breathing.
Inferior turbinate hypertrophy may cause nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty can help treat nasal obstruction as well.
When using septal nasal cartilages for rhinoplasty, we analyze the sizes and shapes of septal nasal cartilages accurately for precise surgical planning.
After analyzing the size and shape of nasal bones, nasal osteotomy may be performed during rhinoplasty, if they need to be corrected.
*A 3D-CT analysis may not be required depending on your physician’s opinion.
