Downward Pointing Tip Correction

 People with a downward pointing nose have their nose tips pointing down like an arrow. These types of noses are also called as "ptotic nose" or "arrow nose." If your nose tip is pointing downward, you may appear to have a longer nose. The logic behind a downward pointing nose is that the cartilage at the tip of the nose is either too weak simply tilted downward. Usually, people with a humped nose also have a downward pointing tip. For such cases, the cartilage tips must be strengthened and positioned to point at a better angle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will my nose become longer if my rhinoplasty surgery goes wrong?

When the supporting material is not strong enough, the nose tip may gradually droop through constant use of surrounding muscles. To prevent this from happening, it is vital to operate using the correct prosthesis. The material itself, as well as the length and the angle of your prosthesis, is crucial.

Q: How do you define "wrong nose correction"?

Long nasal septal cartilages or sagging alar cartilages also cause a downward pointing tip. In simple cases, the nose tip cartilage is trimmed off to reduce its length. After removal, another cartilage (nose or ear cartilage) will be inserted to raise the nose and create proper balance. For complex cases, bridge implantation may be processed and additional cartilage will be used.

Q: My nose points downwards especially when I laugh or smile...

It means that your depressor septi muscle (the muscle that pushes down the tips) has overdeveloped. In this situation, the muscle should additionally be treated to prevent recurrence.

Facts about this procedure

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
