Nose Bridge Surgery

Nose surgery for low nose bridge called rhinoplasty is to elevate the height of nose bridge by inserting implant or grafting autologous cartilage.

In order to aesthetically elevate nose bridge, the line from where the double eyelid crease is formed should be bent up in an arch shape, and the nose bridge should be concaved for 2mm from the forehead.

Nose tip appears to be the most sophisticated when it is 2~3mm higher than the nose bridge.

For nose bridge surgery, incision is made on mucous membrane inside nose that surgical scars are not visible on the outside, relieving patients’ concern for scars.

For nose bridge augmentation, we use implants (silicone, gore-tex, silitex, and etc.) as well as autologous tissue (dermal fat and etc.).

Since patients with low nose bridge also tend to have bulbous nose tip, performing nose tip surgery along with nose bridge surgery can create more beautiful nose line for such patients.

Nose Tip Surgery

Nose tip surgery is for those who have high nose bridge but have nose tip appearing as flat or bulbous.

When nose tip is flat and bulbous compared to the nose bridge, it is hard to  give refined impression. By properly elevating nose tip, you can expect stereoscopic facial contour created with youthful and sophisticated appearance.

Nose tip surgery ties widened nasal alar cartilage to create sharp and elevated nose tip. Nose tip grafting is to graft ear cartilage, septal cartilage, fascia, dermal fat, or etc. to the nasal tip in order to slightly elevate the tip of nose as well as the nose bridge.

If patients desire to additionally elevate  nose tip, septal cartilage can be grafted between the nasal alar cartilage.

Types of Nose Tip Surgery

when shape of nose tip is in general shape

  • Bulbous and fat nose tip can be naturally elevated by tying up the widened nasal alar cartilage.This is when the shape of nose tip is close to ideal shape which does not require much correction.

when nose tip must be elevated

  • If nose tip is severely low, or nose bridge requires extensive elevation, additional nose tip grafting is performed. Autologous cartilage or dermal fat can be used, but ear cartilage and septal cartilage, which are the most similar to nasal cartilage, are widely used for grafting.

when nose tip must be elevated with strong support

  • For upturned nose, nose tip can be additionally elevated by grafting septal cartilage into the space between nasal alar cartilage.
