Dorsal hump: Removing a dorsal hump is a routine maneuver for a rhinoplasty specialist. Removing the hump is simple, but reconstructing the middle vault to prevent collapse and future breathing (nasal valve collapse) and cosmetic problems (inverted-v deformity) is the part that adds complexity. It's important to seek out a board-certified surgeon experienced in rhinoplasty for long-term results.
