How to get rid of nose bump without surgery?
Can I Get Rid of Nose Hump Without a Surgery?
No, there’s no non-surgical way to remove the bone and cartilage causing the nasal hump. You can however, inject above the hump with fillers like Radiesse or Perlane to make the hump less visible. Fillers add volume, not the reverse, so the entire bridge of the nose will appear higher from the side view.
Removing the hump with Rhinoplasty requires medial and lateral osteotomies. (Francis R. Palmer, III, MD, Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Radiesse for non surgical rhinoplasty works well.
Injecting small amounts of Radiesse right against the bone above the bump (towards your forehead) can give you a straighter profile without surgery (George J. Beraka, MD (retired), Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)
I think you will need surgery to reduce the hump. Sometimes fillers can be aded to the low areas above and below the hump in order to hide the hump (non-surgeical nose job). But I think in your case the hump is too big. Don’t hit your nose – it won’t work and only cause more of a problem. (Ronald Schuster, MD, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)
Large Humps Need Rhinoplasty Reduction
Why you understandably would like to avoid rhinoplasty surgery, there is no other way for your hump to be reduced. Yours is not a small hump but a significant one such that a full dorsal resection with osteotomies is needed.
It is beyond camouflaging it with fillers above the hump area. (Barry L. Eppley, MD, DMD, Indianapolis Plastic Surgeon)
Non-surgical correction for your dorsal hump
It seems from your photo and description that at least a small component of the hump is chronic edema (swelling). If this is the case then dilute cortisone injections may help to reduce the swelling and the therefore the hump. Some injectable filler may also have a role.
Artefill (permanent filler) may be the best choice for a permanent correction. For the ideal contour, however, surgery is likely the best approach. (Leif L. Rogers, MD, FACS, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon)
Masking the dorsal nose hump – non-surgical options? Fillers offer small but visible improvements
With small dorsal nose humps, injectable dermal fillers injected into the radix and bridge of the nose (just above the hump) can help to mask the hump. However, there is a limit to the amount that can be injected safely.
For moderate sized (such as yours) to large humps, the improvement from fillers would be smaller and surgical correction plays a much stronger role. If your goal is to have a perfectly straight nose in profile view, then there is no doubt that rhinoplasty surgery is the only option.
Otherwise, if you’d like to see a small subtle improvement, then there may be a role for filler which, in the hands of a board certified plastic surgeon, is a safe, no down-time office procedure. (Ariel N. Rad, MD, PhD, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)
To get the results you are likely looking to achieve, surgery is probably the best option for you. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can evaluate and guide you to achieve the results you desire. (Kimberly Lee, MD, Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Hump of nose
While some individuals are using fillers to camouflage small irregularities, it will not mask your hump. I fyou want it treated successfully, then you need to have it surgically reduced. (Steven Wallach, MD, Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)
If you’re looking for a straight profile from the side view, a filler is not likely to satisfy you. Filling in the bridge above the ‘bump’ would give you too much fullness and even if it could improve the appearance slightly your tip will now look even lower.
In my opinion you are a good candidate for surgical reduction. Typically this should be a relatively straightforward procedure will minimal risk of complications. A nasal surgeon should be able to fill you in on the options and potential for complications if you elect surgery. (Jon F. Harrell, DO, Miami Plastic Surgeon)
Getting rid of a nasal hump without surgery?
In most cases, a significant nasal hump will require rhinoplasty surgery for reduction. This may involve reducing the hump surgically or reducing some of hump. In some cases, fillers may be used to help lessen the hump by placing the product above, but these applications may be limited and may last only 6mo. to a year. Use of synthetic materials in the nose should be used with caution for fear of infection and dislodging. (Stephen Delia, MD, Boston Plastic Surgeon)
Only rhinoplasty can solve large humps
Small humps or imperfections can sometimes be corrected with injectable fillers, though a large full hump will only be solved with rhinoplasty. Sorry. Best of luck, peterejohnsonmd.com (Peter E. Johnson, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)
