Rhinoplasty

   

Rhinoplasty

   

The common rhinoplasty refers to placing augmentation of implants into the nose, which raises the nasal bridge, the glabella, and also the tip of the nose. The length of the nose needs to be harmonious with the facial proportion, and the height of the nose needs to be determined considering the development of the forehead and the development of the mentum. It is also necessary to consider the natural line descending from the forehead and the line that begins at the eyebrows.

   

Raising a Flat Nose

One common feature of Asian noses is a flat nasal bridge. This may bring an unbalanced feature and make the face look flat and dull. Usually when the bridge is low, its tip tends to be low as well. In this case, it is recommended to raise the bridge and tip together to create a harmonized look.

Rhinoplasty

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those with a flat nose bridge
2. For those who have a low and wide nose tip
3. For those with a overall flat and dull face

   

How is Flat Nose Surgery Performed?

When the tip of the nose is relatively high, but the bridge is slightly low compared to the height of the tip, the most recommended surgical way would be to augment an implant. However, in the case where both the tip and the bridge are low and flat, it is necessary to reshape both sections. For tip correction, septal cartilage is used to rebuild the framework of the nose, but in some cases, the ear cartilage or the rib cartilage may have to be used instead. Both the ear and rib cartilage may have to be used in other cases. This will be diagnosed upon meeting with the doctor or consultant.

Blunt Shaped Nose

   

Blunt Shaped Nose

   

Asian noses are generally different to Caucasian noses in many aspects. The overlying skin and cartilage are the main attributes that differ. Thus the rhinoplasty techniques also differ. A blunt nose can give a plain and dull impression. A sharper nose tip can be made with Tip Rhinoplasty method for a blunt shaped nose. By going through with this procedure, one will be able to gain a much more sophisticated appearance.

   

What is a Blunt Shaped Nose

Blunt Shaped Nose

Many Asian people have a nose tip that is blunt and circular. There are two main causes for a blunt nose. One is when the cartilage in the wing of the nose is largely blunt and separated to the side, and the other is because of the skin and the soft tissues covering the nose are thick.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those who have a wide or blunt nose tip
2. For those who are dissatisfied with their current nose shape
3. For those who have a large and thick nose tip

   

How is Blunt Nose Surgery performed?

Blunt Shaped Nose

The first stage is to trim the shape of the cartilage and gather the nose tip. This is called the cartilage operation. If the nose tip’s fat is thick, there may be need of removing the fat from the upper area of the nose. This will thus help in making the nose look sharper since the skin on top of the nose tip will shrink. Usage of the nasal septum and ear cartilage, for making a diamond shaped nose, may be necessary. There is also a closed incision and open incision method when conducting the Blunt Nose Surgery. The method will differ according to each patient. The method will be diagnosed upon meeting with the doctor or consultant.

Humped Nose

   

Humped Nose

   

Also known as the hooked nose, a hump on the dorsum of the nose may often give off a harsh, masculine, older looking appearance. In technical terms, the surgery is also called “humpectomy”. A small amount of change can drastically change the overall appearance. Therefore, rather than aiming to raise or heighten other regions of the nose by incorrect insertions of implants, it is important to accurately diagnose and carefully design the structure.
This surgery is accompanied with many complicated methods considering many factors to make a polished line. The width of the nose bone, the size of the hump, shape and height of the nose tip, and many other factors are considered in this procedure.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those with a protruding bone or cartilage on the nose bridge
2. For those who think they have too strong or masculine looking nose
3. For those who wish to have a smooth and straight nose bridge

   

How is the Humped Nose Surgery Performed?

In cases of a minor hump, it can be removed easily. However, in severe cases, both the cartilage and bone must be removed or shaved off to create the perfect nose appearance. Usually, due to the hump, the tip of nose may hang low as well. In this case, it is important to reshape the bridge and tip together to make a straighter and natural looking nose. For a severe humped nose, it requires a very experienced plastic surgery surgeon, since the surgery itself is very complicated.

Crooked Nose

   

Crooked Nose

   

Crooked Nose, also known as the deviated nose or curved nose, occurs when the nasal septum is deviated or displaced. Furthermore, physical ailments such as nasal obstruction, chronic headaches, and other related nasal ailments may occur due to a crooked nose. The main goal of the surgery is to make a strait looking nose, considering the anatomical structure as well as the overall facial features.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those who have a nose that looks off-centered, deviated, crooked, or curved
2. For those who suffer from nasal related ailments
3. For those who have crooked appearing nostrils

   

How is the Crooked Nose Surgery Performed?

It is important to find why the septum is deviated before surgery. This will help to solve the nasal problem and prevent recurrence. The deviated nasal bone or septum cartilage can be fixed by osteotomy, which breaks the nasal bone on each side to re-arrange the nose to become straight. Also, the cartilage can be grafted to reshape the tip of the nose. After surgery, it is necessary to wear a splint for a few days on the nasal bridge in order to keep the dorsum safe.

Bulbouse Nose

   

Bulbouse Nose

   

There are many people whose first impression may look dull and unrefined due to their bulbous nose. It is usually a common trait in Asian patients who tend to have both an under-projected dorsum as well as under-projected nasal tips. Unlike the eyes, nose is not only composed of soft tissues. The nose is structured with bones and cartilages, just like a building is constructed with steel and columns. In order to reduce the nose, means reducing not only the bones but also the cartilage. For example, when the nasal bone (upper half of the nose) is thick and wide, lateral osteotomy procedures are conducted to narrow the nasal bone. If it is a humped nose, it can be corrected by cutting and grinding the nasal bone structure and the cartilage, which will result in a smooth and sharper looking nose appearance.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those who have a wide or blunt nose with a shallow dorsum
2. For those who have a thick and round nose with a flat nose bridge
3. For those who have saddle deformity

   

How is the Bulbouse Nose Surgery Performed?

Bulbouse Nose

For a wide and bulbous tip, it is necessary to remove the cartilage or reshape the nasal tip by using the septum, ear, or rib cartilage. When the shape of the tip becomes narrower, it will provide a significant improvement and will bring a more defined nose feature. It is important to maintain the nasal asymmetry during the correction. A more dramatic improvement is possible with dorsal augmentation.

Short & Stubby Nose

   

Short Stubby Nose

   

The short and stubby nose is also commonly named as the pug-nose. This is one of the most complicated surgeries when it comes to rhinoplasty. Those who have exposed nostrils are in many cases dissatisfied with their feature. Since the nostril covering the nasal alae is short, the surgical procedure to correct the nose is also complicated. Through hiding the nostrils, extending the nose length by relocating the nose wing cartilage, and also lifting the nasal bridge if needed, a beautiful nose can be made. All surgeries are conducted with consideration with the total ratio of the face. Plastic surgery professionals will choose the ideal height, shape and best suited implant.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those who have a wide, low, and short nose
2. For those who have exposed nostrils
3. For those who have blunt looking and upturned nose features
4. For those with an upturned (over-rotated) nose due to previous surgeries

   

How is the Short & Stubby Nose Surgery Performed?

Short Stubby Nose

This procedure uses the autologous septal cartilage or ear cartilage to rebuild the framework of the nasal tip. Using the cartilage, the tip can be pulled downward, thus setting the nose to the proper location. If necessary, the nasal bridge can also be raised using an implant to give a better look. A doctor with extensive experience and skill is needed to conduct this surgery. When performed correctly, it will bring a dramatic change.

Nostril Reduction

   

Nostril Reduction

   

Flared nostrils or widely round nostrils can often contribute to an unrefined, unsophisticated appearance. The ideal width of the alar is the same as the width of the area between the eyebrows. Flap reduction is performed for large flared nostrils whereas, for wide nostrils, nasal sil reduction surgery is required. The main aim is to create the proportional nose while correcting the shape of the nose tip.

   

Who is it Recommended For?

1. For those who have a flat appearing nose due to wide nostrils
2. For those who have an arrowhead nose
3. For those who are dissatisfied with their current nose shape
4. For those who possess a nose tip which appear flared or wide

   

How is the Nostril Reduction Surgery Performed?

An incision is made inside the nostrils. Afterwards, crescent shaped resection of the lateral area is performed and is later sutured together. Through this method, the nose tip will look better. Since an incision is only made on the alar base, it leaves no visible scars. Also, even if an incision is made on the outside of the alar, the scar can be concealed. It is important not to damage or insect the facial muscles adjacent to the nasal alae to achieve a natural look and avoid asymmetry or any facial discomfort after the surgery.
