Nose Hump reduction surgery Korea

A nose is composed of a fibula, upper part, and the cartilage in the lower part.
Therefore, nose correction requires working not only on the cartilage but on the bone as well.

In what type of nose do we need to correct the bone?

We do not need to touch the bone in all type of situations. There are many times where we can have good results although the bone is not touched at all.

But in cases such as severe hump, tilted nose, damaged nose, or very wide nose, correcting the bone may be necessary

How do we correct the nose hump? 

Nasal hump is not only formed by the bone but also by the cartilage. So if you are to correct the hump, the surgeon would need to correct not only the bone but the cartilage also.

The correction does not stop with the removal of the hump part. The correction requires closing of the open roof on the nose. The details can be seen in the image below.

As in the top image, once the hooked part of the nose is removed, an open roof (in the lower image) is formed. If nothing is done on the open roof, the nose becomes wide and does not look pretty physically. Therefore, we fracture few parts of the bone to move the location.

As shown in the image above, if the nose is fractured then the nose has the movability. Movability makes it possible for us to have the nose is the shape that we want. If the nose is too wide after the nose hump correction, then it is possible to have reduction by closing the open roof to give good final results.

If the nose is dented to one side (It is common to find dented nose with hump), we can push the bones to the opposite side to make the nose straight.

Is it dangerous to touch the bone while correcting the nose?

Touching the nose bone means that you are exposed to the risk of touching other parts during the procedure. If you touch the lacrimal drift by mistake, this may lead to teary eye symptoms. Also, as you can see in the image below, there are thick arteries on the sides of the nose. If the arteries are touched then there is high possibility of this causing swelling of the nose.

Does it hurt?

There are no receptors on the nose that feels the pain. The receptors are on the periost. During the nose correction, there are times when the bone needs to be fractured but this does not cause any pain.

There are no nerves on the on the bone, so it would be wrong to say that there is pain on the nose. However, the nose bones are formed closely together with the bone around the nose and the forehead therefore, making the bone fracture can be scary for the patient causing stress also.

So, there are at times when we have to do general anesthesia. There are some patients who are brave enough to do just the local anesthesia.
