Nasal Hump

Reducing Excess Nasal Cartilage on the Bridge in Albany, NY

When there is a protrusion of nasal bone and/or cartilage on the bridge of the nose, the tissue can create what is known as a nasal hump. Albany, NY, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edwin Williams frequently encounters rhinoplasty patients who cite this cosmetic issue as their primary concern for their face and the main reason they are seeking nose surgery.

While such a hump may be an element that contributes to the overall look of a large nose, it can also be an isolated nasal feature. Specifically, a nasal hump sits over the nose's central third—its bridge—where the cartilage is made up of the nasal septum and some of the upper lateral cartilages. The bulge may be due to genetics or, in some cases, trauma. As with any nasal surgery, correcting a nasal hump is not so much about addressing one specific aspect of the nose, but shaping the nose so that it appears in balance and harmony with the rest of the face. The end result should be natural looking and complementary.
