San Diego Dorsal Hump Reduction | Nasal Bridge Refinement Specialist

Many patients have a prominent hump on the bridge of their nose that is most visible from the side view. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that can reduce the prominence of the dorsal hump to smooth and straighten the nasal bridge, bringing the nose in balance with other facial features and dramatically improving the appearance of the profile. While female patients can benefit from either a straight bridge or a bridge with a slight curvature, male noses are most aesthetically pleasing with a straight bridge.

Removing the dorsal hump is a complex cosmetic procedure and it is important to find a surgeon with a substantial level of training and expertise with rhinoplasty. Dr. Kolstad is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in San Diego who specializes in dorsal hump reduction. He has many years of experience correcting dorsal hump deformities and creating beautifully refined nasal bridges.

Every nose is different and it is important to choose a surgeon who appreciates your unique facial anatomy and takes the time to understand your specific needs and goals. Dr. Kolstad recognizes that San Diego has an incredibly diverse community with people from every part of the world, and he specializes in achieving beautiful results that match each patient’s unique features and ethnic background.

At your consultation, Dr. Kolstad will take the time to listen carefully to your concerns and goals for rhinoplasty. With his artistic eye and expert understanding of facial anatomy, Dr. Kolstad will use advanced imaging technology to computer enhance your nose to visually communicate the potential changes he can accomplish through surgery.

The best way to understand Dr. Kolstad’s goals for dorsal hump reduction is by studying his results. We have hundreds of before-and-after photos in our galleries and we invite you to study them.
