JW Plastic Surgery considers even small differences such as your smiling face and pronunciation.
When you smile or pronounce certain vowels (“o” or “u”), your nose tip goes down and it may make your mid-face look longer. The key to the success in rhinoplasty for a droopy nose/long nose depends on how to correct this symptom. JW Plastic Surgery’s rhinoplasty aims for the natural beauty, even considering small changes after surgery.
The Golden Ratio of the nose to the face
|The ideal length of the nose is one third of the length of the face and the ideal nasolabial angle is between 95° and 105°.
If the nasolabial angle exceeds 110°, the nose tip is upturned. As a result, the nostrils are overly exposed from a frontal view and the nose looks short.
We recommend rhinoplasty for a Droopy Nose / Long Nose to the following people!
JW’s Droopy Nose / Long Nose Correction
By cutting a small amount of the upper wings of the alar cartilages and tying it up, we lift and re position the alar cartilage to shorten the length of the nose.
It may be required to support the alar cartilages with septal nasal cartilages on the nasal bridge.
It may be required to cut the muscles pulling the nose tip as necessary. After this procedure, your nose tip will not sage anymore even when you smile or pronounce “o” or “u”.
In case of extremely long septal nasal cartilages, the end of the cartilages should be cut.
After reducing the length of the cartilages, we fix the nose tip to other cartilages so as to prevent the nose from lengthening over time
In-depth examination through a three-dimensional CT analysis
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
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.
* A 3D-CT analysis may not be required depending on your physician’s opinion.
