What Causes a Nasal Hump?

A nasal hump, also called a dorsal hump, is a common aesthetic complaint. It is caused by excess bone and/or cartilage on the bridge of the nose. This hump can be large or small. It is often inherited, but can also be caused by nasal trauma.

How Do You Treat a Dorsal Hump?

If you have a dorsal hump, meet with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss your treatment options. The best treatment approach for you can vary depending on your anatomy. Dr. Sajjadian can create a detailed treatment plan after your in-person consultation. Your treatment plan may consist of one or more of the following options.

  • Hump Removal– A dorsal hump typically consists of a combination of bone and cartilage. This hump can be surgically removed, smoothing the appearance of the area.
  • Smoothing of the Radix– A dorsal hump can appear more pronounced in patients with a low radix (top part of the nose, near the eyes). Cartilage grafting or injectable dermal fillers can raise the radix, making the hump less noticeable. In some cases this can be corrected using non-invasive nasal correction.

To achieve the best possible rhinoplasty results, it is often necessary to treat many areas of the nose, not to focus on one particular problem. Using a parallel approach allows for improved form and function and ensures a balanced, attractive appearance. Important care must also be taken to ensure the nose balances with the other facial features.

How Should I Choose a Surgeon for My Nasal Hump Removal Surgery?

Treating a dorsal hump is a complex procedure. Your surgeon must remove the hump while maintaining the nasal structure. This can require considerable skill. Choose a surgeon with extensive experience performing rhinoplasty. Patients with a non-Caucasian background should choose a surgeon that regularly performs ethnic rhinoplasty. Ideally, the surgeon should be a board certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the top rhinoplasty surgeons in the area with focus on creating beautiful results. A triple board certified and is an expert in both ethnic and traditional rhinoplasty. Call and schedule your consultation with him today.
