A hump that resides in a typical position, such as this one, is partly made
out of bone and partly made out of cartilage. Removing the hump involves
using a file on the bone and carving down the excess cartilage.

What is the best filler to correct a too sloped/curved nose (after rhinoplasty)?
I had a rhinoplasty ten+ years ago. While I am happy with my nose, it is very ski slope, which is very cute but I feel it would be nicer if it were just straight and the bridge slightly thinner (it used to be slightly raised so it's already great). I also feel I have a slight amount of excess skin each side of the bridge, which could be absorbed. I think this can be done with a filler and is a fairly easy procedure. Any advice on which injectable? Or any other advice?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't do it.
Sorry, I don't really mean to be oppositional but...
Your nose looks great. The "slope" is so slight that it's all but imperceptible. The injection wouldn't make the bridge thinner, it wouldn't help with the "excess skin" on the sides. It would only harm your nose. It can't be controlled well enough to both reduce the slope and not cause a bump. It would be asymmetric and make your nose look crooked from the front. Whenever you use the term "slightly" to describe something wrong with a nose, that means that the nose shouldn't have any treatment. And finally, nothing on the nose is "easy," even just injecting filler.
