Discover the common aesthetic nasal deformities that can be treated using an Orthonose Surgery nasal guide.

Dorsal Hump Reduction

What is it?

The dorsal hump is a hyper projection of the nose visible from a partial and full profile view of the face. Dorsal hump is caused by an excess of bone and cartilage at the nasal bridge (or ‘dorsum’). Surgical treatments of the dorsal hump include the targeted ‘shaving’ of excess tissues (structural rhinoplasty) or a control push downward of the dorsal hump (push down technique or preservation rhinoplasty)  in order to achieve a more aesthetic straight-line or slightly concave shape.

With an Orthonose Surgery nasal guide, your surgeon can check the advancement of the dorsal hump reduction at several stages during your surgery to make sure the nasal bridge conforms to the shape of your 3D-simulated nose.

Nasal Deviation

What is it?

Nasal deviation refers to an asymmetry in the facial midline when viewing the face front-on. Nasal deviation is treated using a variety of surgical techniques, including the trimming and grafting of nasal tissues to re-align the nasal structure to the facial midline.

The Orthonose Surgery nasal guide enables your surgeon to verify each step in the re-alignment of apparent nasal deviation to the exact specifications of your 3D-simulated nose.

Tip Irregularity/Asymmetry

What is it?

The shape of the nasal tip has a significant impact on the overall aesthetic of the nose. Common issues include bulbous nasal tip characterized by an abnormal roundness or wideness, or drooping tip where the tip of nose lack of support and create a pseudo dorsal hump.

The Orthonose Surgery nasal guide is designed on the surface of your simulated nose, providing a basis in 3D for a wide variety of nasal tip corrections, minimizing any margin for error.


How does Orthonose Surgery work?

Step 1


Take an appointment with one of our registered doctors where your face will be scanned in 3D using a handheld scanner - you won’t even need to get up off your chair!

Your scan will be uploaded to our platform and our trained personnel will begin to make changes to your nose shape and create several different looks for you to choose from. If none of these choices suit you no problem! - we keep the original scan on file so we can start from scratch at any time!

Once you’ve decided on your new look, we will design your surgical guide to the exact shape of your new nose and send it on for printing.

Step 2


All our nasal guides are printed using state-of-the-art stereolithographic (SLA) printers that are specifically designed for medical applications. We use a certified ISO 10993-1 biocompatible resin to ensure our guides are safe and medical grade.

Once your surgical guide is finished we clean and sterilize it and send it directly to the location where your surgery will take place.

Step 3


Your surgeon uses your guide to verify any anatomical modifications fit exactly to the shape of the guide, taking the guess-work out of your rhinoplasty for a no-surprise result!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be treated using an Orthonose device?

What is a surgical guide?

A surgical guide is a tool used by surgeons that restricts or measures free-hand surgical gestures in order to minimise the margin for error during surgery. In the case of the Orthonose Surgery nasal guide, surgical alterations to the nasal anatomy are measured against the guide with the ultimate goal of reducing the distance between the guide and the nasal anatomy.

What are the common aesthetic abnormalities that can be treated by rhinoplasty?

The most common aesthetic nasal abnormalities include nasal deviation, tip irregularity/assymetry and dorsal hump. For more information see above.

How can my surgeon request to use an Orthonose device?

Tell your surgeon to contact us to discuss how we can integrate Orthonose Surgery into their current practice.

How can I access my scan?

You will recieve an email from us with a link to create your patient profile on our online platform. No special operating system/equipement necessary, you be able to visualise your scan from your normal web browser via your phone or your computer.
