We recommend Upturned Nose / Short Nose Surgery to:
The Golden Ratio of the nose to the face
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.
Procedure of Upturned Nose / Short Nose Correction
For a slightly short nose with nostrils not overly exposed
We insert an implant or perform autoplasty to lift the height of the glabella and to make the nose look longer.
We insert an ear cartilage or other implants before the nose tip to make the nose look longer.
For an extremely short and upturned nose with overly exposed nostrils
If the patient has a short nose and his/her alar are sunken upward,
We perform septal extension graft and nostril lowering at the same time.
