Dorsal Hump Nose

A dorsal hump refers to a bump on the bridge of the nose. It occurs due to excess bone or cartilage in the nose — or both — and causes facial asymmetry. 

For individuals dealing with a hump nose or bump on the nose bridge, rhinoplasty surgery is available. With a dorsal hump nose job, an individual can remove, trim, or fill excess bone or cartilage in the nose, leading to a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance.

What Causes a Dorsal Hump Nose?

The cause of a dorsal hump varies. In some instances, an individual experiences nose trauma during birth that results in a bump on the nose bridge. Or, in other cases, a dorsal hump develops on its own later in life due to a nose injury. Genetics can also play a role in the development of a dorsal hump.  

Regardless of why a person experiences a hump nose, it is important to note that the condition impacts facial appearance. At the same time, a dorsal hump can be treated via rhinoplasty surgery.

How Does Dorsal Hump Nose Surgery Work?

Like a primary rhinoplasty, dorsal hump nose surgery is a complex procedure. In addition, each dorsal hump procedure must be tailored to the patient to ensure this individual can safely correct a hump nose.

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery is globally recognized for his expertise in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and head and neck surgery. Before he performs a dorsal hump nose job, Dr. Azizzadeh evaluates the patient’s nose and other facial features.

Dr. Azizzadeh understands an effective dorsal hump treatment depends on its prominence of the patient’s nose and this individual’s nose profile. He also recognizes that a dorsal hump nose surgery patient has facial rejuvenation goals in mind and wants to do everything possible to help the patient achieve these goals. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh crafts a custom dorsal hump nose surgery treatment plan for his patient. This plan accounts for the patient’s facial appearance and treatment goals, and it enables Dr. Azizzadeh to ensure the patient can achieve the best-possible results.

Why Is a Custom Dorsal Hump Nose Job Treatment Plan Required?

Each person’s nose is different. Much in the same way, each dorsal hump on a patient’s nose varies and must be treated accordingly.

Dr. Azizzadeh believes there is no “standard” procedure for dorsal hump nose jobs. Instead, he devotes time and energy to create a personalized treatment plan for each dorsal hump nose surgery patient. This plan helps minimize the risk of potential dorsal hump nose surgery complications and boosts the likelihood that a patient can use the treatment to improve facial appearance.
