Wide Nose Bridge What is Tip Plasty?

Customized Tip Plasty for your face

Defined nose makes your face look more beautiful and younger than your actual age. An upturned nose, a droopy nose, or a bulbous nose can be corrected through tip plasty. JW Plastic Surgery creates a beautiful and natural-looking nose with symmetrical nostrils and alar base, which does not droop even after a long lapse of time.

In order to design a beautiful nose tip for your face, we make an accurate diagnosis by analyzing the shape, angle, length, and height of your nose in depth. Although you may see sufficient results only with tip plasty, you will be even more satisfied if you receive tip plasty.

Wide Nose Bridge In-depth Examination

Before surgery, we conduct a precise and in-depth examination through a 3D-CT analysis on the nasal bones, the shape, conditions, and size of nasal soft tissues for a safe and accurate operation.

A deviated nose and nasal septum deviation

In case of congenital nasal septum deviation or asymmetrical bones or cartilages bent by external injuries, a deviated nose should be corrected for both aesthetic reasons and functional improvement such as breathing discomfort

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 bones

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

※ A 3D-CT analysis may not be required depending on your physician’s opinion.
