When your nose is out of proportion to your face, it can impact your confidence and diminish your quality of life. Reducing the dorsal hump is the most common rhinoplasty request. Dr. Steven Pearlman is a rhinoplasty specialist who regularly performs dorsal hump removal in NYC.
What is a dorsal hump?
The dorsal hump is a part of the nasal bridge that’s raised. It causes the nose to project out from the face. This feature can range in size and typically isn’t noticeable except from a patient’s profile.
How does dorsal hump removal work?
The technique used to smooth away a humped nose depends on whether the hump is bone, cartilage, or a combination.
The hump is either rasped down with a bone file, cut off with a chisel, or whittled down with power instruments such as a Piezo Ultrasonic device.
Specifically designed to treat and reduce a nasal hump, preservation rhinoplasty in NYC is a new method of achieving a smoother profile with consistent results. Preservation rhinoplasty techniques work by removing cartilage and bone beneath the outer shell of the nasal bone and cartilage. The bridge is literally then compressed downward, flattening out the hump, creating a smooth, natural, and straight dorsum.
