Can Costal Rib cartilage/Silicone/Goretex be carved so it creates little hump in Nose Bridge? Revision Rhinoplasty case.

Q: Look forward to 4th Revision Asian rhinoplasty. Long story short, my nose’s bridge now looks too tall with Silicone inside and too straight.  I want to have nose with a little hump that makes my nose look natural & unique in some way IMO. Is it possible to carve Rib cartilage or silicone so it has small hump?

A: It is possible to intentionally create a little hump during dorsal augmentation (building the bridge) in Asian rhinoplasty.  While a number of techniques exist to build the bridge, using autologous grafts (tissue from your own body) is the safest and most permanent method.
