Q:  Is it possible to remove a bump without breaking the nose?


It is possible to remove the bump on top of your nose without breaking your nose.  This requires reducing the bone and cartilage on the top of the nose in order to remove the bump.  However, it is important to note that if the bump is more than just a very small one, by reducing the bump on the top of the nose you require the bones along the side to be broken.

The reason for this is that once the top of the nose has been reduced it leaves an opening where the bones no longer join because the top of the nose has been taken off.  This is sort of like taking the off the top of the peak of a tent.  With this open roof deformity, breaking the bones is necessary in order to restore the top of the nose.
