Nose Surgery — Dorsal Hump Charlotte Rhinoplasty

June 7, 2015, 1:56 am

One of the most common complaints regarding nose shape is the dorsal hump, which is an aesthetic issue that can be fixed using nose surgery. When a dorsal hump is located high enough on the bridge of the nose, it is only made up of bone and soft tissue. How do plastic surgeons use rhinoplasty to reduce the bone tissue that makes up a nasal dorsal hump?

To address the bone aspect of a dorsal hump using nose surgery, a plastic surgeon must first make an incision to gain access to the underlying tissues. After this is done, they will shave away bone from the area using small, precise medical implements such as medical chisels, rasps, or a cutting tool known as a burr.
