Description: Female patient presented with an interest in improving not only the function of her nose but also the shape. Specifically, she desired removal of a dorsal hump (bump on the top of the nose). Dr. Somenek performed a septoplasty to straighten the nasal septum, thus improving her ability to breathe through the nose. Dorsal hump reduction with a rasp was then used for refinement of the bony nasal dorsum. Cartilaginous dorsal hump was removed conservatively. The upper lateral cartilages were preserved to further maintain the integrity of the middle nasal vault and internal nasal valve. Nasal tip support was provided with a columellar strut.
Individual results may vary.
