    Any way to decrease the nasal hump?

    I know that sometimes stretching out a body part over the course of time can increase it's size just slightly, and I was wondering if this could be done the same except opposite (pushing in slightly) for the nose? I have a minor slight hump on one side of my nose that doesn't bother me too much, but it's just uneven with my right side. I believe the bone may be just my natural bone shape as in the nose is just like that, or it could be an injury when I was a child or something. I don't recall ever extremely destroying my nose or breaking it, but you never know. Maybe as a child I did something that made it like this. The hump is not extremely big, it's just one-sided in which at a certain angle, it makes my hump more prominent then the other. I feel my nose and it seems my left side (my left), on the edge of the main nose bone there's a small bump, and on the right, there's a bump, but not as big as the one on the left. So it looks just a tad bit weird as in the bump is visible when facing my centered-right side than left side. It doesn't bother me too much, but I wonder...

    Do all people get born with perfect noses as a baby/child, then growing up something occurs and they have a slight hump (more or less prominent) or shape differences as a result?

    Anyways, I was just wondering what things I can do to "try to lower" the hump or so without the extremes of rhinoplasty. I am not considering rhinoplasty or any other extreme methods, but do you think if I keep slightly apply pressure on my nose hump bone slightly every day, would it go decrease by size any chance or even swell up and resulting even bigger later in the future? I just thought pushing someone down for a long time would make it even slightly go down further (just like stretching). Or maybe the nose would go the opposite way and swell as a result of too much pressure on it?

    I have no idea whether or not pressure can change that. You can always try it and see whether it makes any difference over time.

    But anyway... I saw this thing on tv a while ago (probably last year), I don't remember which show it was, but they were talking about nose jobs and apparently there is this new technique they have now. It's definitely not as extreme as surgery because all they do is take some substance and they inject it into your nose to change the shape of it, the parts you don't like.
    I have no clue what it's called or exactly how it's done, but I did see this show and some of the results on people looked really good.
    If you're up for that you could research it and maybe try it.

    Just a suggestion... and since it's not extreme and doesn't require surgery it may be something you're looking for. I don't know how much it costs though, but it's probably much cheaper than rhinoplasty.
    Good luck.
