Do you have to break the bones with rhinoplasty?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients question whether you have to break the bones with rhinoplasty. During rhinoplasty, taking down a nasal hump is common. Patients desire to narrow the nose is also common. When a dorsal hump is taken down, this may widen the nose and create what is called an open roof deformity. Once this occurs, the nasal bones will need to be fractured and brought in to close this open roof. This will also narrow the nose.
