The nose hump, also referred to as a nose bump or dorsal hump, describes a raised hump on the bridge of the nose. Nose humps can be small “bumps” that rise and fall, or larger humps that encompass most of the bridge. Nose humps can be composed of cartilage, bone, or combination of the two. While most noticeable from the side view, the front view of the face is affected by the hump as well.
Small to Moderate Sized Nose Hump – A dermal filler injection like Juvederm or Restylane can be used to make the hump appear smooth and straighter.
Large Size Nose Hump – Non-surgical options are usually ineffective and therefore not recommended
Small to Moderate Sized Nose Hump – Closed rhinoplasty (through the nasal passage) is used to permanently remove the hump.
Large Size Nose Humps – Either closed (through the nasal passage) or open (incision in the columella) rhinoplasty techniques can be used to remove or reshape the hump. When large humps are removed, a technique known as “spreader grafts” are indicated to prevent nasal obstruction following the nose job.
