My nose has an unsightly hump that isn’t too noticeable to anyone except me. I want the hump smoothed down, but only slightly. Are there techniques or surgeons that specialize in rhinoplasty with a goal of slight changes in nose shape?
Most good rhinoplasty surgeons will work closely with you so that the nose that you desire is the nose that you will get. I always ask my patients what bothers them about their nose during our consultation. If they tell me that all they want is a specific thing changed to their nose I will listen carefully and address only that specific change. Having said that, if I feel that one change will lead to other changes that should be made in order to bring the nose into balance, I will also suggest to the patient the changes that I see will need to be performed in addition to the changes that they have suggested in order to create the nose they really had intended on having. If nothing else will add anything to the final rhinoplasty result then I will perform the surgery exactly as my patient had requested.
