The bumps, the droopiness, the crookedness. Every glance in the mirror and every photo opportunity that turns into a moment of anxiety. Your nose should be a source of symmetry and confidence, not a reason for retreat. If you’re ready to embrace a new nose, it starts with understanding your options.

Cause & concerns

Dorsal hump

A dorsal hump is the prominent part along the top of your nose where the cartilage and nasal bones meet. It is usually genetic, but may also develop as a result of nasal trauma.

Dorsal humps are one of the most common reasons people undergo nose reshaping procedures.

Drooping nose tip

Also known as a downturned or ptotic nose, a drooping nose tip is when the lower section of your nose has a downward pointing orientation.

A droopy nose tip is often genetic, but can result from rhinoplasty surgery, and often develops as a sign of ageing as the structures supporting your nose tip weaken.

Disappointing results from surgery

The dissatisfaction rate from rhinoplasty is surprisingly high.

Whether the surgery did not go at all like you thought, or there are some minor imperfections you aren’t happy with, going through such an ordeal only to be left unhappy can be a hard pill to swallow.


A crooked nose can be genetic or result from trauma and is why your nose looks different from one side compared to the other.

Minor crookedness can be treated non-surgically, while severe cases and those with functional impairments in airflow are more suited to surgery.


A lack of definition along your bridge and tip often makes your nose appear flat and unbalanced.

Bridge projection

A common concern seen in Asian noses, a lack of bridge projection can give the nose a short and bottom heavy appearance, and also cause your glasses to slip down your nose.

Treatment Options

Non-surgical rhinoplasty

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is the first line treatment to reshape your nose.

It can instantly improve almost all aesthetic concerns without the risk, pain and cost of surgery.

View Treatment

Nose threads

Nose threads are a minimally invasive procedure involving the insertion of dissolvable threads along the nose.

They are only suitable for building up significant bridge definition in people without a dorsal hump.


Often referred to as a nose job, surgery is a permanent option for nose reshaping.

Surgery is no longer the first line option for most people who want to change their nose. It is typically reserved for people with functional issues, large aesthetic problems, or who have not achieved their desired result non-surgically.

    The nose is made up of bone and cartilage.

    The nasal bones form the rigid upper section, while the septal, lateral and alar cartilages form the lower flexible section.

    Most nasal bumps are genetic and develop as you grow.

    However, trauma and surgery can also cause bumps anywhere along your nose to form.

    Non-surgical rhinoplasty is a cosmetic treatment that primarily uses dermal filler to change the appearance of your nose.

    The non-surgical rhinoplasty has very little discomfort, as long as it is performed using the correct technique.

    Nose threads are categorised as a low risk treatment. However, side effects include infections and scarring.

    There are also cosmetic risks, and these frequently occur when they are used for the wrong type of nose.

    Nose threads are only suitable for noses that lack significant structure at the bridge.

    If you have a droopy nose tip or dorsal hump nose threads are not indicated.

    Rhinoplasty is broadly categorised into open and closed, depending on the type of incision and access used to reshape the bone and cartilage.

    There are a number of subtypes of rhinoplasty, that differ based on their technique, and what kind of result they achieve.

    A common misconception is that rhinoplasty gives a permanent result. In fact, while it creates a permanent change in the appearance of your nose, your nose will keep changing as you age.
