All Dallas residents decide to see Dr. Bassichis at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery for rhinoplasty surgery for different reasons. But among the most common is the desire to remove a nasal hump. This bulge on the nose can affect your facial look, not only straight on but your profile as well. Luckily, there are rhinoplasty surgery techniques designed to address this exact issue.
How Dr. Bassichis Removes a Nasal Hump
All rhinoplasty surgeries are different, so the techniques employed for your surgery will be different than those of other patients. If you’re coming to Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery to have a nasal hump removed, Dr. Bassichis’ first step will be to gently shave the nasal hump down. Not only does this remove the hump, but it also gives you a more aesthetically pleasing look and profile.
After the nasal hump is shaved down during rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Bassichis will perform a procedure called lateral osteotomy – also known as breaking the nose. While some patients are surprised to learn their nose must be broken to remove a nasal hump, it is actually necessary. Breaking the nose allows for the nose to narrow the nasal bone, thus closing up the open roof that is usually left when a nasal hump is shaved down.
Candidates for Rhinoplasty Surgery
While rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in Dallas and throughout the US, Dr. Bassichis has strict requirements to ensure his potential patients are healthy enough to undergo this elective plastic surgery procedure. They include:
- Providing all your medical records
- Being in good general mental health
- Being in good overall physical health
- Passing a pre-op exam from your general practitioner before surgery day
