Nose hump correction can be a procedure that doesn’t even enter people’s heads when thinking of dermal filler treatments, but it can have an astounding effect on the appearance of one’s nose, especially in profile. These procedures should only ever be performed by a highly experienced injector, you can read our blog about choosing the right dermal filler clinician for more information.
Non-Surgical Nose Reshaping
We recently welcomed a patient into the clinic who had a pronounced dorsal hump following a surgery to remove adenoids at the age of 11. She was treated by Dr Tapan, our medical director, who used dermal fillers to perform a nose hump correction procedure by introducing small amounts of product into the bridge of her nose to balance her profile.
In less than half an hour, he was able to straighten out the bump on her nose to improve its appearance, both from face on and in profile, using a non-surgical rhinoplasty treatment.
“When I was about 11 I had my adenoids removed and that was a horrible surgery that left me with a lot of internal scarring. Unfortunately the doctor at the time, as recommended and reputable as he was, left me with a very bad profile, a bump which I never had before and a dip in my nose. It’s something that has really affected me all my life. I think I have done quite a good job of living with it, but if I were to be very honest it’s something that has always made me feel very self conscious every time somebody takes a picture of me from the side. It is wonderful to be here in such capable hands, I’ve known of Dr Tapan for a very long time, and I feel reassured to know that he will only do what is best for my face and put me first.
This is very overwhelming and emotional because I have lived with this nose since I was 11 and a half, a good 20 years. I can’t get my head around the amazing job that Dr Tapan has done, he is so skilled, and I was so calm – his touch is so gentle that I didn’t feel any pain at all! I cannot recommend PHI clinic and Dr Tapan enough, he truly is an amazing person and an amazing doctor.”

Nose Hump Correction with Juvederm Volux
Dr Tapan used Juvederm Volux, a thicker product from the Juvederm Vycross range that is perfect for defining the contours of the face, including the chin, jawline, and nose hump correction. These products are made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a sugar that is found naturally in skin tissue which attracts and retains moisture. This HA is synthesised in a lab, meaning it is less likely to cause an adverse reaction, and can last for up to 24 months.
Results are noticeable immediately following treatment, but will develop over the course of 3-6 weeks, at which point we advise that patients come back to see us for a review appointment.
