Side Profile of Caucasian Female With Dorsal HumpDallas men and women who have a dorsal hump on their nose frequently seek out Dr. Hopkins’ expertise to reduce their nasal abnormality through rhinoplasty surgery. Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery that can address several cosmetic and functional issues of the nose, both changing the aesthetic appearance of the nose and the internal nasal structure to improve breathing.

A dorsal hump, which can be made of bone, cartilage, or both, can be caused by several factors. These include trauma to the patient during his or her birthing process, injury to the nose later in life, or genetics. The good news for Dallas patients suffering from an unwanted dorsal hump is that rhinoplasty surgery can address this cosmetic issue for good.

How Dr. Hopkins Addresses a Dorsal Hump

Every nose job surgery is different, and Dr. Hopkins’ approach to fixing your dorsal hump is going to be dependent on its prominence on your nose and profile, as well as your expressed desired outcomes.

Some dorsal humps that are small can be more easily addressed via fillers, shaving, and rasping. A larger dorsal hump may require Dr. Hopkins to break and then reset the nose to a more desired aesthetic position.

Why Are All Rhinoplasty Surgeries Different?

The simple answer to this question is that all Dallas men and women have different nasal anatomies and different aesthetic desires for their nose outcomes. The more technical answer is that each nose presents different surgical challenges, which requires Dr. Hopkins to deploy different rhinoplasty techniques in order to provide the patient with his or her desired outcome.
