The nasal ridge or hump is an excessive prominence of the nasal dorsum. It is also known as aquiline nose or Greek profile.

 

It is caused by excessive growth of the nasal bones and the cartilage of the nasal septum, that in the middle area of the nasal dorsum it breaks the straight line and causes an outward curvature that gives a feeling of a larger nose.

It is caused by an excessive growth of the nasal bones and the cartilage of the nasal septum, that in the middle area of the nasal dorsum it breaks the straight line and causes an outward curvature that gives a feeling of a larger nose.

 

Therefore with this matter, Dr. Jose Salvador tells us all about Rhinoplasty that it is a good solution to solving this type of problem. Whether open or closed, the surgery allows the resection of excess bone and cartilage in this area, aiming to give the dorsum of the nose a straight-line appearance.

 

The resection of these tissues requires the use of bone-cutting material such as rasps or electric piezotomes, together with special cartilage scissors.

Finally, to complete the work, it is necessary to perform a lateral osteotomy on both sides of the nasal pyramid in order to bring the two bony tables of the proper bones closer together and close the roof of the pyramid.

 

 

Problems and deficient corrections.

 

 

In the 1960s, it became a trend to overcorrect the hump, giving the nose the appearance of a slide, which could be seen in well-known national and international actresses. Nowadays, we would speak of a sequela of rhinoplasty due to excess resection of the dorsum.

 

Another error that can be found in patients who have undergone hump surgery is the presence of an open nasal roof. This occurs when lateral osteotomies are not performed or are performed incorrectly, leaving a separation space between the two nasal bone tables, which at the level of the dorsum allows us to see two train tracks and an intermediate empty space and not a uniform dorsum with continuity.

 

The anaesthesia used is usually general anaesthesia and the surgery may be classed as an outpatient or require 24 hours of hospitalization.

 

It is around a one-hour procedure and the patient usually has to wear a nasal packing and a plaster cast covering the nose following the surgery. Effusion and swelling around the eyes are common for the first few days after the procedure and the packing is removed on the third day and the plaster cast after 10-12 days.
