Nose hump removed in Charlotte NC

Getting a nose hump removed

One of the more commone reasons patients seek out rhinoplasty is to get a nose hump removed. The thing about the nose is that although it’s right in the center of the face, people don’t generally want it to be the center of other people’s attention. The features that have the greatest potential for beauty are the eyes and lips — the role of the nose is to complement the other features, not to distract from them. A small irregularity in the line of the nose, such as a nasal hump, can make an otherwise bland face more interesting, but on a beautiful face it’s simply a flaw.


If you want a nose hump removed, whether it will be a closed rhinoplasty or an open rhinoplasty (and therefore how long the recovery will ber) depends on the size of the hump. If it’s small enough, you might not need surgery at all — filler injections along your nose can smooth out its lines and make the hump disappear.


Preparation and recovery

If you do need surgery, be sure to quit smoking first (if you smoke) and don’t take aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin B or herbal supplements before the surgery. After surgery, stay home for about a week, avoiding others and washing your hands regularly so as not to catch a cold — your nose is still much too fragile to sneeze through. Don’t worry about what your nose looks like until the swelling is completely gone, which may take several months.
