A hump bridge consists of nasal bones and cartilages. We can correct an hump nose by cutting hump on nasal bones and cartilages. If hump on nasal bones or cartilages are excessively removed. It is important to cut the prominent part precisely by well-experienced, skilled medical professionals and board certified plastic surgery specialists.

Since the nasal bones are extremely thin, the roof of the nose may look empty after prominent nasal bones and cartilages are removed. If it is unnoticeable, it may be left as it is. However, if the open roof may wide or noticeable, it needs to be corrected precisely to avoid an awkward nose shape.

Nose tip correction is a procedure to lift the nose tip through re positioning of alar cartilages.

In order to prevent the nose tip from drooping over time, a support will be inserted into the nasal bridge or a pulling muscle will be pulled and may need of shortening the muscle. (Generally, autologous nasal septum cartilages are used as a support.)

A droopy angle between the nasal bridge and philtrum (nasolabial angle) is generally corrected through nose tip augmentation. Considering the patient’s conditions, an autologous cartilage may be added for better results.



Wide Nose Bridge In-Depth Examination

Nasal obstruction

Inferior turbinate hypertrophy may cause nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty can help treat nasal obstruction.

Various forms and sizes of septal nasal cartilages

When using septal nasal cartilages for rhinoplasty, we analyze the sizes and shapes of septal nasal cartilages accurately for precise surgical planning.

The size of nasal bone

After analyzing the size and shape of nasal bones, nasal osteotomy may be performed during rhinoplasty, if their size needs to be corrected.
