Hump Reduction in Rhinoplasty:
The most common request in Rhinoplasty is for dorsal hump reduction.
The hump on the top of your nose is made of both cartilage and bone. During surgery, the cartilage is usually reduced with a knife, and the bone is reduced by filing or actually cutting it with a chisel-like instrument. You will need to have the hump rasped or filed down.
Then osteotomies are made in the nasal bones, and the nasal bones are narrowed to close the open roof, which is created by removing a large hump. If the nasal bones are not narrowed, then open roof and flat top deformity will occur as a direct result of only a hump removal.
