When the oblique views of a nose show a hump in the middle of the dorsum, it usually means that the nose is wide in that area.  Her nose was narrowed in its bony part, which is the upper half of the nose.  Narrowing the bones of the nose allows us to see a nice straight dorsum from this oblique view.

This is also a good view to see the columellar show and the strength of the tip cartilages.

Questioner: What is the purpose of massaging nose after rhinoplasty? Do I need to do it if nose is uneven in swelling?
I went to my doctor and forgot to ask him about the unevenness in the swelling of my nose after my rhinoplasty. Since bandage removal post op to now, 7 weeks post op, the right side of nose is still more swollen than the left, and its always been like that. I head about massaging the nose on this website, should I do it? Do some doctors say its mandatory or is it just a recomendation always to help reduce swelling?t I'm just paranoid about my constant uneven swelling on my right side of my nose.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't massage your nose
Hi,
I know doctors disagree about this, but I'll give you my 2 cents. Don't massage the nose. The doctor put the cartilages and bones in a certain position, and you want them to stay where they were put. Don't push them around by massaging the nose. It won't do anything to decrease the swelling or speed up the maturation of the scar tissue.

It can't help, and it might hurt.
