A misshapen nose can affect men and women of all ages. This condition can include one of a range of imperfections on the nose, such as: a flat bridge, a bump on the bridge (dorsal hump), crooked nose or a lifted tip.
The appearance of a misshapen nose can look different from person to person and is often the result of an irregularity with the skin, bone or cartilage. Genetics may result in a person having had a misshapen nose from birth, whereas others may find they develop this concern by way of injury or trauma, or following a surgical procedure. When the cartilage or bone has suffered trauma the natural process of healing and repair encourages calcium deposits to accumulate at the site of injury. It is this build-up that can lead to an irregularity with the nose’s natural form. As a dominant facial feature, an unsatisfactory appearance can unbalance the rest of the face and affect the way a person perceives their personal aesthetics.
