Nasal Bumps or Deviations
A bump in the nose can be inherited or as the result of a trauma. Trauma can cause the front of the nose to flatten or an injury that has occurred in childhood can alter the growth of the microscopic growth centers in both the bone and the cartilage of the nose. A bump in the nose that is inherited is often more cartilage than bone. At times, a bump in the nose can appear larger than its causes depression in your profile. If the bump in the nose is a result of a childhood trauma then the lower part of the nose can have a loss of height, this is known as saddle deformity. Bumps on the nose can occur regardless of age and can be seen in both men and women. Anyone can suffer from nasal bumps and it is common for both men and women.
The goals of nose reshaping are as individual as the patients who choose to have a rhinoplasty. By reshaping the nasal structures, including bone, cartilage, and skin, a cosmetic surgeon can help achieve one or more of the following:
- Straighten a crooked nose
- Smooth a prominent bump in the bridge of the nose
- Reduce the length of an over-protruding nasal tip
- Refine the size of a bulbous nasal tip
- Narrow a nose that is too wide for the face
- Reduce the size of a nose that is too large
- Restore symmetry to the nose following injury
- Correct breathing problems by opening up blocked nasal passages
Goodbye to nose bumps & Humps: We at Tapovan use of fillers has been adapted as an alternative to many surgical lifts and shaping procedures, with non-surgical rhinoplasty being one such example. To start, providers may utilize a temporary filler to perform non-surgical nose shaping. This allows patients to get used to the new shape and size prior to committing to a longer-term filler or surgical rhinoplasty if desired. However, because the nose is one body part that never stops growing as we age, non-surgical rhinoplasty with a permanent filler that will last years before it naturally dissolves may offer a natural-looking alternative to surgery that may also be more easily adapted as the patient ages, as compared to surgical rhinoplasty. Additionally, while surgical blepharoplasty (to correct defects and disfigurations of eyelids) may be hard to mimic with non-surgical treatments, a combination of dermal fillers carefully injected behind the brow for volume and lift (the skin around the eyes is much more delicate, so misplaced filler can easily cause further weighting and drooping) with laser anti-aging treatments for improved skin elasticity may afford a reasonable alternative to an invasive eyelid lift procedure.
