Nose Hump Removal
What is Hump Nose Removal?
People with a humped nose may have heard that their look is fierce or that they give strong impressions to people. A hump nose is a nose with a bump in the center of the nose bridge. When surgically correcting a humped nose, bones and cartilages are trimmed off. It is important to meet an experienced doctor because, in the process of bone and cartilage removal, the center of the nose may collapse, or may result in an uneven surface.
Preventing bone regrowth is the key-point in correcting hump noses. Thus, operations must be customized to each patients' noses.
Regrowth of the hump should be prevented. Moreover, revision cases may occur or you feel unsatisfied if there's too much of everything - including not considering individual's nose shape, excessive use of prosthesis and unsuitable angle (too high). When an excess of bone and cartilage is carved off, the center of the nose may sink or have a bumpy surface. There's a high possibility that you'll get infected thus in order to prevent all these nasty things from happening, you should be checking the information first and consulting with experienced surgeons is necessary.
