Nose Hump

Nose Hump should be corrected whenever possible for an upright gracious nose shape.

Nose Hump, also called hawk nose, or camel back nose.

Nose Hump is a bad shape from auspicious point of view.

Compared to a short nose, round nosewide nose wing or broad nose, a flat nose is very common.

What is the anatomy/definition of Nose Hump?

The meeting point on the bridge where 2 nasal bones, 2 upper alar cartilages, and the septal cartilage meets protrudes too much.

 

 

  1. bump on the ridge of nasal bridge

 

A hump nose is one that has a abnormally high point of the bridge relative to the bridge above and below of it. The bridge is the back of the long section of the nose. Surgery correction: Obviously, to correct the hump nose will need to address the hump.

A hump nose if occurring concurrently with a flat tip or even a long columellar will gives an impression of a parrot beak. Oh dear! some of these clients might be nick named “parrot beak lady”

 

2. side bump beside the bridge at the same mentioned anatomical point above. Most people will not include this bulging as hump.

Causes of Nose Hump

  • genetic cause of Nose Hump. Some are better endowed than other, congratulation. Sorry for the rest. But the good news is that it can be corrected easily with the new technology
  • ethnicity. Some ethnic such as the Caucasian, Middle Eastern,and South Asian has a higher incidence of nose hump. Many Mongoloid and Asian tends to has lower incidence of nose hump.
  • Accident. Where knock on the bridge could cause fracture of the nasal bone and denting inward or jetting outward causing a hump shaped bridge.
  • Infection. If there is infection of the tip destroying the fibro-fatty tissue of the tip thereby causing collapse of the tip also gives a curved back looking like a camel back. This is not a true hump but only visually.
  • Deviated nasal septum. This is inborn, or congenital in origin.
  • Foreign body. Illegally injected silicone material or implant may cause a hump shaped nose bridge if not placed properly.

Treatment of Nose Hump

Various treatment options for Nose Hump:

  1. Knowing where is the anatomical causes of flat nose, it is easy to correct the deficit. Lift up the bridge and the nose tip will automatically correct the flat nose.
  2. getting rid of side bump. This can be done by simple rasping or by clean detailed delicate surgical fracturing the side of the outer nasal bones and bring them inward.
  3. lifting up the nasal tip alar cartilages if concurrent flat nose is there.

Both of the above can be corrected by surgery using a rasping procedure by way of a sharp rasp or a knife to shave off the excess structures.
