I recently asked if excessive bone deposition in the bridge of nose could be reversed. The reply was plastic surgery, are there natural methods?

In brief: Rhinoplasty

Excess bone deposition can be removed during rhinoplasty.
There are no homeopathic ways to reduce this bone, unfortunately.

In brief: Not aware of any...

Other than reduction of the bony excess surgically, I am not aware of any non-surgical methods.

In brief: Natural appearance

To lower a boney hump is always surgical.
It is one of my most common requests. It's a pretty straightforward procedure with little pain and down time. You wear a splint for a week or so and when it comes off, in capable hands it will look natural. I prefer video imaging to communicate to you the best esthetic plan. An alternative is to use injectable fillers to disguise the hump.

In brief: Trauma

Breaking your nose would probably reduce this deformity, however you may find it is very painful and not recommended.

If it is excess bone or cartilage, surgery would be the only option to remove this.
