Bone at the side of the bridge of my nose!

right at the top of my nose there is bone, it blocks my breathing so I was wondering how a surgeon gets to it? do they have to shave the dorsum down a bit because my dorsum is high? or can they see all the bones during the operation and just get to it with a chisel? I was wondering this because I thought cartilage came before bone
I'm sorry if it is hard to understand this question im not sure how to word it, thankyou if you try to answer it!

You have cartilage near your nostrils and lower bridge. You have bone closer the the top (near your eyes) of your nose. In most cases, the surgery can be performed from within (closed) (more)
