Hump On Nose

Conveniently located to serve Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland

Rhinoplasty, or nose-reshaping surgery, can improve the look of the entire face, as it’s the central feature. It is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures, and top Columbus surgeon Dr. Shah at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery has performed hundreds over his career.


So many people have a small bump or hump on their nose and wonder about having a rhinoplasty.  Every time you take a picture, that is the first thing that you notice on yourself!  I have patients that have been thinking about it for years.  The best news is that it there are very simple solutions for this.  At the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer all of the latest techniques to help you get exactly what you want.

If you have only have a small bump or hump there are several options.

The simplest solution is to have a “non-surgical” rhinoplasty – yep, no surgery at all.  This involves injecting a “filler” (like Juvederm or Restylane) above and below the “bump” so that is becomes smooth.  It would be similar to smoothing out a mound by filling it with dirt on either side.  Of course, this does make the nose a little bigger, but it is a very small amount.  The only down side is that it is temporary.  Unfortunately, all of the fillers that are available last about 9 – 12 months.

The easiest permanent solution is to have a minor procedure to remove the bump (or hump on the nose).  This is a very small procedure that is performed in the office and you would go home the same day.  There would be no scars on the outside, just a few incisions on the inside. The procedure takes about an hour and that’s it. 

If you would like only a minor change to your nose with nose job surgery or rhinoplasty, then at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, you would only need to have a minor procedure that can often be performed with you awake (if you want), like at a dentist office. The minor nose or rhinoplasty surgery would have a much shorter recovery time. Like all plastic surgery, the plastic surgeons at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery will do the least amount of surgery in the safest manner possible to try to give you exactly what you want.
