Trimming, shaving, or reduction of the nose hump is the most common reason for seeking rhinoplasty in Los Angeles. Inadequate resection or reduction of the nasal hump can be demoralizing. While some are born with a big nose hump others can develop it as a result of nasal fracture. Reduction of the nose hump requires not only removal of nasal bone but also the nasal septal cartilage. Under-resection of the nasal hump can result in a persistent nasal bridge hump, while over-reduction can cause a snooped nose look or even a saddle nose deformity.
