What is a nose bridge bump and what causes it?

People with a nose bridge bump suffer from a very common aesthetic facial disproportion, specifically a bump, or hump on the bridge of the nose. Most nasal bridge bumps are develop as a result of hereditary development, as there is an overgrowth of the nasal cartilages and bones leading to a convexity or “bump” on the bridge of the nose. Occasionally, traumatic injury to the nose, suffered during adolescent or childhood development, can result in overgrowth of the bone and cartilage on the bridge of the nose leading to a bump as well. Aesthetically, bridge bumps can distract from more ideal nasal-facial proportions and are particularly bothersome to patients on profile pictures or pictures that are viewed mostly from the side. Nasal bridge bumps can detract from otherwise harmonious nasal-facial proportions and are probably the most common cause that patients seek a nose job, or rhinoplasty surgery.

Can I treat my nose bridge bump? And if so, how is it treated?

Patients who are looking to remove their nose bridge bump can be treated by Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica with both non invasive and invasive treatment options. Dr. Stephen Mulholland, a world renowned cosmetic surgeon and owner of SpaMedica, has developed, pioneered and popularized the minimally invasive injectable rhinoplsty, or five minute nose job, technique. During this injectable nose job technique, dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radius or Voluma are injected just above and below the bridge bump leading to a smoothening of the bridge contour and a lessening of the visual appearance of the nasal bridge bump. This successful technique has allowed many bridge bump patients, who may be afraid of cosmetic plastic surgery, to improve their nasal-facial balance and proportion.

Alternatively, Dr. Mulholland can also perform a traditional cosmetic rhinoplasty, or nose job, surgery to correct a nose bridge bump. His extensive experience and cosmetic surgery expertise make him one of Canada most sought after cosmetic surgeons and rhinoplasty specialists, performing rhinoplasty surgeries in his Toronto SpaMedica facility for over 15 years. During a cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure the bridge bump is reduced and the nasal width, length and other aesthetic proportions are rebalanced to optimize the various facial and nose proportions. Reduction of the nasal bridge bump is a relatively short procedure and is performed under general anesthesia and patients can usually return home the same day. Post operative care is generally relatively free of significant pain or discomfort and patients wear a cast for approximately one week and can return to work after its removal.

SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre and Toronto cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Mulholland, have been performing rhinoplsty to correct a nose bridge bump in Toronto since 1997. Dr. Mulholland is one of the most skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeons in Canada and his SpaMedica Toronto Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre is one of the most trusted and reputable cosmetic treatment facilities in the country.

If I have my nose bridge bump treated will it come back?

Recurrence of the nose bridge bump is extremely uncommon. Careful management and protection of the nose after your procedure while it’s healing will minimize the risk of any residual or recurrent bump or irregularity on the nasal bridge.

Cosmetic rhinoplasty for reduction of a bridge bump is one of the more common presenting complaints of cosmetic rhinoplasty patients and Toronto nose job patients and Toronto rhinoplasty patients can work with Dr. Mulholland using a computer imaging system to assess the kind of results they are likely to achieve. The use of a computer imaging system greatly reduces the anxiety and concern from Dr. Mulholland’s Toronto rhinoplasty patients and Toronto Nose job patients over what their nose and nasal, facial proportion aesthetics may look like after a procedure.
