Dorsal hump rhinoplasty is a way to reduce or entirely remove the hump shape found on many people’s noses. This projecting bump area can cause problems with self-esteem and self-confidence; getting it taken out will improve the proportions of the nose and make it look more aesthetically pleasing.
After dorsal hump removal, spreader grafts are sometimes added to the area in order to make sure the middle third of the nose stays strong. Without these grafts, there is a possibility that the bridge could collapse. Since the airways are formed by parts of the middle third, this is especially important in the prevention of breathing issues.
