Nose hump reduction
Nose hump removal is usually performed surgically. However, some non-surgical options for reducing the appearance of a nose hump include:
- Skincare routine: Maintaining a good skincare routine can help improve the texture and appearance of the skin on your nose, making the hump less noticeable.
- Makeup: Using makeup to contour and highlight specific areas of your face can help to reduce the appearance of a nose hump.
- Exercise: Certain facial exercises may help to strengthen the muscles around the nose, potentially reducing the prominence of a nose hump.
It is important to keep in mind that these treatments are not permanent and may not be as effective as surgical options. It is always best to consult a specialist for a personalized recommendation.
Nose hump correction surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that modifies the shape of the nose. It can remove a hump or bump, reshape the tip, narrow the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. The procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon and typically involves making incisions inside the nostrils or across the columella. It may also involve breaking and repositioning the bones and cartilage of the nose. The recovery period for nose hump correction surgery typically lasts one to two weeks and involves avoiding strenuous activity and exposure to direct sunlight.
Some common side effects of nose hump reduction surgery include:
- Pain and swelling
- Difficulty breathing
- Unsatisfactory results requiring revision surgery.
It’s important to discuss potential risks and side effects with a qualified plastic surgeon before undergoing any procedure.
