I would like slight reduction of my nasal hump. What procedure would you suggest for this minor change, surgical or non-surgical rhinoplasty?
In general, a nasal hump would be treated using a surgical hump reduction during rhinoplasty. In certain individuals there is a depression above and below the hump that can be filled with Restylane which would be considered a nonsurgical rhinoplasty. The advantage of the surgical option is that the results are permanent. The disadvantages are that it is a surgical procedure with the associated risks and recovery. The advantages of filler are that it is relatively easy and has low risk however the disadvantages would be that it needs to be repeated and only some cases are eligible.
