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.
Using of autologous can make your nose tip to be more natural!
Using of autologous in “JW Plastic Surgery Center” can give lower percentages of results in few side effects such as inflammation or thinning nose tip skin and makes your nose tip move naturally.
We can raise the height of a nose tip by re positioning of your own alar cartilage.
This procedure will corrects the shape of a nose tip using septal nasal cartilage, rib cartilage, or costal cartilage. Autologous cartilage may be implanted into the nasal bridge so as to support the nose tip or the nasal septum may be extended.
Silicone implant is the most common and oldest implant for rhinoplasty. It is not absorbed or does not change in shape even after a long lapse of time. In addition, it is easy to form silicone into various shapes, considering the patient’s facial characteristics.
If the patient’s skin is too thin, an implant may be seen through the skin. Proper implants should be used considering the patient’s skin thickness and conditions.
Gore-Tex, widely applied to vascular surgery, has been proven to be safe. As Gore-Tex is softer than Silicone implant, it can be used for those who have thin skin. In addition, it looks very natural after an operation.
Gore-Tex easily assimilate into the tissues and develops few complications such as foreign body reactions due to its microscopic holes. Because of its soft texture, it is difficult to sculpt it into a desired shape or to insert it into a proper location. Therefore, surgery using Gore-Tex should be performed by well-experienced and skilled rhinoplasty (nose surgery) specialist.
Silitex is an implant consisting of silicone on the front and thin Gore-Tex on the rear. It has the advantages of both silicone and Gore-Tex. If the patient has extremely thin skin, using autologous fascia or dermis may be added to the front of an implant, instead of Gore-Tex.
If you are not comfortable with autologous cartilage or afraid of scars or pain, donated cartilages may be used. Donated cartilages are used as a rhinoplasty material after being disinfected and stabilized. Approved by FDA in U.S.A.
Human dermis is processed to prevent rejection reactions. Using donated dermis, we can create a beautiful and natural-looking nose.
A fascia is a sheet surrounding muscles. Fascia used for rhinoplasty are collected from the inside of the scalp above the ears. As surgical incisions are made on the scalp, they are easy to be collected. In addition, surgery using fascia is simple and the scars are not easily seen. Fascia are generally applied to patients with thin skin.
ear cartilages, the most widely used autologous cartilages, can be easily collected and do not leave any scars after being collected. They are generally used for nose tip augmentation and sometimes for precise nasal bridge augmentation.
Septal nasal cartilages, collected from the inside of the nostrils, do not require any incisions. As they are straight, they are used as a nasal bridge support to create a sharp and prominent nose.
When septal nasal cartilages or ear cartilages are not enough, Rib cartilages can be collected. Rib cartilages are used to extend a firm and extremely short nose or a shrunk nose due to the side effects of the previous operation, and extremely upturned nose.
In order to prevent the alar cartilage from being seen, we create a natural-looking nose tip by implanting autologous dermis or artificial dermis into a nose tip.
The above procedures may be combined and performed at the same time.
The noses of Asians are smaller, and their nasal tip skin is thicker than those of Westerners. Moreover, in the Asian nose, the tip projection is poor and the tip-deﬁning point is obtuse. To obtain sufﬁcient nasal tip projection, structural supporting grafts such as the columellar strut graft or septal extension graft are required in most Asians.
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.
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.
Inferior turbinate hypertrophy may cause nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty can help treat nasal obstruction.
When using septal nasal cartilages for rhinoplasty, we analyze the sizes and shapes of septal nasal cartilages accurately for precise surgical planning.
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.
