Question: I broke my nose years ago which left it slightly bent. I had rhinoplasty but this left a hump on my nose. Why would this happen and how can it be fixed?
Answer: Rhinoplasty surgery is very complex and sometimes it is not possible to obtain a perfect result. The goal of the surgery is to improve. Depending on the way the patient heals, there may be some slight irregularities after the surgery. It is very difficult to correct a twisted nose and there may be some residual twisting. A nasal hump may be improved with further surgery. It is important to see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to determine what can be done.
