The eyes may be the windows to your soul but the nose has its own story to tell, too. For many, the nose is what they first notice on another person’s face. Ideally, your nose should subtly provide natural facial harmony and not distract from your eyes, lips, or cheeks.
The appearance of nasal humps and bumps is what commonly drives patients who seek Dr. Lavey’s cosmetic surgery services. A bump is caused by uneven amounts of cartilage supporting the nose. Volume loss that happens with the natural aging process can further emphasize nasal humps and bumps and make the cheeks look less defined.
At our practice, there are two ways to fix nasal humps and bumps. First, there’s the traditional rhinoplasty surgery. Although it may sound easy at first and simply look like all the surgeon has to do is shave the bump, it actually involves a combination of factors such as your existing degree of nasal projection and the thickness of your nasal skin. It is important to find a highly experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
As an alternative, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Radiesse are ideal for those who are seeking a non-surgical approach to correct nasal humps and bumps. As their name implies, they fill in dents and bumps for an even, symmetrical look. Results can be immediately noticed following the injection. However, one of the downsides of this approach is that the results are only temporary and may not be suitable for those who seek long-lasting outcomes.
