Can I Do A Closed Rhinoplasty If All I Want Is Hump Reduction?

Q: Dr. Eppley,What if the slight hump reduction was the only change the patient was seeking, to ensure that the tip of the nose isn’t altered at all, wouldn’t closed rhinoplasty and rasping of a very slight bump be a viable option?

A:If the rhinoplasty goal was limited to the hump area with no tip changes desired then the closed approach would be the best approach to do so.
