A common reason patients may come to our Orange County office requesting a rhinoplasty procedure is to reduce a dorsal hump. Often the reduction of a dorsal hump in conjunction with decreasing the tip projection can soften the features of the face.

The dorsal hump is composed of both bone and cartilage. The reduction of the dorsum may require changes to the base of the nose or additions to the radix area of the nose to keep the nose in proportion and balance.
