A hump on the nose (‘dorsal hump’) is often genetic, but may also form as a result of trauma to the nose. When the hump is in the upper region of the nose, it is likely made of bone, when it is lower down, it more likely consists of cartilage. This can be treated surgically (rhinoplasty) or non-surgically using dermal filler. Dermal filler can also be used to correct the appearance of a drooping nasal tip, or asymmetrical or wide-looking nose. The principle of dermal filler nose correction is to change the proportions and definition of the nose in order for it appear straighter, narrower and more lifted.
Dermal filler a substance that is injected into the dermis of the skin and can work improve definition and smooth irregularities. It can therefore be very effective in treating a dorsal nasal hump, making the nose appear straighter. Although there are many different types of fillers, the most popular are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Dermal fillers can have different structures and consistencies that make them more suitable for treatment of different areas. For example, when treating the nose, we use a filler that is firm and smooth in order to shape and define.
