What is Wide Nose Bridge?

Creating a slim and refined nose, Wide Nose Bridge

A wide nose has a wide bridge of the nose and/or wide nasal bone so it can give a dull look, and even your high nose bridge doesn’t look as a sharp. Wide nose bridge surgery vertically incises both sides of the nasal bone and pushes it toward the center of the nose in order to directly narrow the shape of the bone. This is one of the best operations for producing satisfactory results where our patients can enjoy their great image changes.

The width of the nasal base should be the same as the width between eyes and the length from the outer corner of the eye to the ear.
The width of the top of your nose is proportionally good-balanced when it reaches 70~80% of the width of the nasal base.

JW’s rhinosurgery values the balance and the harmony of your nose and other facial features


We recommend wide nose surgery for
  • 01Those who have wide dorsum that gives a dull image
  • 02Those who have a thick bridge of the nose that looks like having a big nose and unbalanced face
  • 03Those who have wide dorsum, low and bulbous nose
Procedure of the operation

A wide nose cannot simply be corrected by raising the nose bridge. A wide nasal bone doesn’t mean that the bone is thick.
The nasal bone is very thin, thus excessive grinding of the bone can create holes in the bone and slight grinding wouldn’t affect it at all. Therefore, for the successful correction of a wide nose, nasal osteotomy is required.

If you are currently receiving treatment for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or thyroid disease, you must inform your doctor or consultant in advance.
  • 02Cigarettes may cause phlegm, sneezing, or bleeding after an operation. We strongly recommend that you stop smoking for two weeks before an operation.
    A serious cold may reduce your trachea and respiratory functions. Please inform your consultant or doctor in advance if you happen to be suffering from a serious cold on the day of surgery.
  • 03Before you come to the hospital, you must remove makeup, contact lenses, any accessories, nail polish, and pedicure on the day of surgery.
  • 04You must stop eating any food at least four hours before an operation.
  • 05We recommend you to wear comfortable clothes, which will not irritate the surgical sites, a mask, a cap, and sunglasses. In addition, we advise you to come with a guardian or use public transportation.
Post-operative management
  • 01Placing the surgical sites on a higher position than your heart helps to reduce swelling.
  • 02Apply an ice pack on the surgical site for the first two or three days.
  • 03Avoid severe friction and acupressure massage around the surgical sites for at least one month after an operation. Use a sauna or take a hot bath at least one month later.
