Is it possible to remove a nose bump without breaking it?

I’ve reviewed plenty of pictures online of others suffering from the same issue, and based on my research I would consider myself to have a pretty big nose bump. I read that small nose bumps can be filed down without breaking the nose entirely. So in my situation, are there any other alternatives?

Based on your one photo, you have a rather large nose bump and if you wish to have a straight nose, then it would require breaking the bones and re-positioning them.  Yes, on occasion, a small bump can be shaved down -- but unfortunately, I doubt if that would be true in your case.  The best answer for you would be to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon for a hand's on exam and discussion.

Good luck!
