Patient receiving anesthesia before rhinoplasty
Dr Hosnani starts the rhinoplasty by making a small incision at the base of the nose right between the 2 nostrils. Removal of the hump is done with the aid of a hammer.

The next step is filing the nasal bone with a rasp.
This step has to be done with a great care. The surgeon touches the top of the nose continuously keeping the look at the pre-surgery photos to realize how much further he should file.

After filing is finished it is time for the lateral osteotomy or cutting the nasal bones from the sides. The surgeon cuts the nasal bone accurately and then relocates the bones inward with the fingers. The hump is not thrown away after removal. The surgeon reshapes this cartilage in millimeters and uses that for reshaping other parts of the nose. Nasal tip is reshaped and strengthened by the cartilage taken from the septum.
