This is a retrospective chart review of patients undergoing aesthetic primary rhinoplasty in a single tertiary referral center between the years 2008 and 2014. Approval of the ethical committee was obtained, and all patients had to give their written consent. Inclusion criteria were adult patients, primary aesthetic rhinoplasty, and the patient's request for hump reduction. Patients with severely crooked noses and/or a minimal hump or profile modifications other than a hump resection were excluded.
