A nose with a wide alar base and gives an impression of easygoing person.
In the past in Korea, this shape of the nose received compliments. However, this nose is not attractive anymore these days due to its dull impression. In particular, many Asians consider this nose shape to be inferior. The causes of bulbous nose are: excessively developed cartilage of the nasal tip; abnormal spread of the cartilage to both sides of the nose; excessive flesh between the nose tip and alar.
Considering individuals’ face and needs, we create a sharp and slim nasal tip for you by revising cartilage and/or removing fat layers under the alar skin. Get the best nose surgery in Korea at JW.
JW does not only reduce the size of the nasal tip but also corrects bulbous tip through reshaping of the nasal tip and refining thick skin tissues.
The ideal width of the alar base is one-fifth of the width of the face. The face looks beautiful when the width of the alar base equals to the gap between the eyes, the so-called glabella.
It is ideal that the nose looks like an equilateral triangle from a bottom view and the length of the nostrils is two-thirds of the total length of the nose.
The surgeon makes an incision into the alar cartilage in the nasal tip to refine the shape.
Suture techniques are used to decrease the distance between the alar cartilages, minimizing the nasal curve and realigning cartilage position.
Excessive subcutaneous tissue is removed from a bulbous nose, in this ‘debulking’ procedure.
For patients with a wide alar base, we directly reduce the size of the alar. There are several reduction methods:
The nasal tip is positioned proportionally well on one’s face, however, as the alar are sunken upwards, the nostrils are visible. In this case, the sunken parts are filled up after a certain inner side of the nostrils is incised.
When it is necessary in order to keep the support of revised parts, autoplasty is transplanted into the inner side of the nose alar.
We directly incise the droopy parts to make your nose appear natural-looking.
We directly narrow the width of the alar by partial incision of inner side or outer side of the alar.
