I BROKE MY NOSE WHEN I WAS 12 AND STILL HAVE A BUMP- WHAT CAN I DO?

Question:
I was skiing- a woman wrapped her arms around me from behind to stop herself, we fell backwards and her poles pushed my nose upward. My nose is not large and previously looked a bit like a ski jump (lovely irony) but has had a bump in the middle ever since the accident 10 years ago. I was told by a plastic surgeon at the time that it would gradually become less obvious and return to normal but it hasn’t.

Dr. A’s Answer:
How to Fix a Hump After Trauma:
Without seeing your nose in person I can’t say for sure, but, I would speculate that you are an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty. Hump removal is the single most common type of rhinoplasty I perform. Whether the hump is natural, the result of trauma, or some combination of both, the procedure should have a high success rate and typically can be done without any external incisions (closed approach).
