Can Rhinoplasty Correct a Nasal Hump and Crooked Bridge?

Yes, a rhinoplasty procedure can correct both – a nasal hump and a crooked bridge. It is a type of nose surgery that helps to reshape, resize,e and provide a better, more appealing form to the nose. Some of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Delhi perform this surgery to help people achieve a better-looking nose without a nasal hump and a straightened, more shapely, more aligned nose bridge.

Removing the Nasal Hump through Rhinoplasty

A nasal/nose hump, also called a dorsal hump, is a bony or cartilaginous protrusion on the bridge of the nose. It can be caused by genetics, injuries, or ageing. Dorsal humps can make the nose appear larger or more prominent and, in some cases, may also obstruct breathing..

To remove a dorsal hump, the surgeon will need to access the bone and cartilage that make up the bridge of the nose. In open rhinoplasty, this is done by making an incision across the columella. In closed rhinoplasty surgery in Delhi, the surgeon must use a special instrument called a rhinoplasty elevator to create small openings in the nasal septum.

Once the surgeon can access the bone and cartilage, they will use various tools to remove the excess material. This may include scalpels, drills, and saws. The surgeon will then reshape the remaining bone and cartilage to create a smooth, even nose bridge.

Once the surgeon has finished reshaping the bone and cartilage, they will close the incisions. In open rhinoplasty, this is done using stitches that are removed after a few days. In closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are closed using dissolving stitches that do not need to be removed.

This surgery may take somewhere between 1-2 hours.

    Aligning the Crooked Nasal Bridge through Rhinoplasty

    A crooked nasal bridge is a deviation or malalignment of the nasal bones from the midline of the face. Genetics, injuries, or ageing can cause it. Crooked nasal bridges can make the nose appear asymmetrical and sometimes obstruct breathing.

    To align a crooked nasal bridge through rhinoplasty, the surgeon will need to access the bone and cartilage that make up the bridge of the nose. This can be done through either open or closed rhinoplasty.

    Similar to nasal hump correction, in this surgery also, the surgeon uses various tools to straighten the bridge of the nose, and a special technique may be applied called osteotomies. Osteotomies are small cuts made in the bone to help it move into the desired position.

    Sometimes, the surgeon may need to remove or add bone or cartilage to achieve the desired results. Once the surgeon is satisfied with the alignment of the bridge of the nose, they will close the incisions.
