Dorsal Nose hump is a very common finding in Caucasians and Indians, especially North Indians. Dorsal nasal hum is partly
bony and partly cartilaginous, and present at lower part of bony nose and upper part of cartilaginous nose. A hump nose or bumpy nose may be associated with
other deformities like long nose, deviated nose, broad bulky tip and deviated nasal septum.
Prima facie treatments looks very simple - removal of nose hump, but actually its not so easy and simple. Once you
shave off hump, it will lead to open roof deformity along with detachment of upper lateral cartilage from midline septum. This is the deformity we got in
most cases of secondary rhinoplasty, primary surgery was done elsewhere. In fact, these noses need complete septo-rhinoplasty with dorsal nasal hump
removal, repositioning of upper lateral cartilage (to improve breathing) , roof closure , correction of deviated nose or deviated septum, supra-tip deformity
correction along with tip-plasty.
