Should I leave a little bump with rhinoplasty?

I have recently had some rhinoplasty patients who desire to leave some of their dorsal hump with nose surgery or a nose job. These may be patients seeking ethnic rhinoplasty or patients that want to retain their nasal heritage. Cosmetic nose surgery is an elective surgery where there is a subjective aspect to the result. If a patient desires to leave some strength to the dorsum or bridge of the nose, this is reasonable during rhinoplasty. It is important to understand that rhinoplasty for an ethnic nose should have a natural result. You do not want to have a “nose job” appearance or an operated appearance to your nose.
