I want the hump on my nose shaved down, or removed. Does this hump removal require breaking my nose?

Not necessarily. There are several factors that will determine whether hump removal requires the breaking of the nose. These factors include nasal bone length, nasal bone width, crooked appearance/asymmetry of the nasal bone pyramid, and height of the hump. There are several times in which I do not break the bones when removing a hump.
