My father is Iranian and I’ve inherited his nose. I have a large hump and the tip hangs down very low. I imagine that removing the hump would make the tip hang even lower so how would this be addressed?

The large hump is usually both bony and cartilaginous in nature. I use a very delicate instrument made by Bien Air to address the bony hump. Unlike traditional methods which use either chisel and hammer or a broad rasp, this instrument is very precise and delicate, thus allowing me to remove the bony hump while minimizing trauma, thus decreasing risk of bruising and swelling. The hump is also due to the tip that hangs down…we call this a “pseudo-hump.” I increase the nasal tip support and projection to address the low hanging tip and thus make the pseudo-hump less apparent.
