When a nose has a hump, the apex of the hump, the most prominent part, is usually at the junction of where the upper, bony part of the nose meets the lower, cartilaginous part of the nose.

If you grab the sides of your nose hard as you feel up and down the sides of your nose, you'll be able to feel where the side walls are made of hard, immovable bone and where they are made of soft, pliable cartilage.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose requires some advanced techniques
Hi,
It seems to me that your nose would benefit from a significant "deprojection." That means bringing the entire nose back closer to your face. Look at the simulated modification that I made in the video link. Ignoring the hump for the moment, you can see that the tip of your nose moved significantly closer to your face. Then, the hump was also taken down.

You have a little bit of what we call "tethering" of the upper lip. That's when the upper lip pulls forward, right where it meets the bottom of the nose. If the tip of the nose is successfully deprojected, the tethering tends to lessen, or go away.

Making a predictable deprojection of the nose is not something that every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see photos of the doctor's other patients who had impressive deprojections, before deciding on a surgeon.
