Leading New York facial plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Miller is achieving excellent results in nasal hump removal with MicroRhinoplasty, a new, less invasive alternative to traditional osteotomy.
The removal of a hump or bump on the bridge of the nose is one of the most common requests in rhinoplasty. This traditionally required the nasal bones to be fractured using a technique known as osteotomy. Osteotomy is performed with general anesthesia and typically involves increased bruising and swelling and longer recovery times. It is also associated with multiple complications.
MicroRhinoplasty is an exciting new technique in nasal hump removal which offers a less invasive alternative to traditional osteotome in appropriate patients. With MicroRhinoplasty, there is no need to fracture the nasal bones. Instead, an air-powered microsaw is used to precisely reduce the bony hump layer by layer until the desired result is achieved. This simple, quick procedure can be performed in the office setting with local anesthesia in as little as five minutes. Patients experience little to no pain, less swelling and bruising, and shorter recovery times. Dr. Miller is excited to be able to offer this new technique for nasal hump reduction to his patients at his Manhattan plastic surgery practice. Watch a video of Dr. Miller performing it here.
