Short Nose Correction

The Short Nose Correction has been the most challenging part of the history of rhinoplasty. This process is considered to be more challenging for Asians compared to Caucasians due to thicker skin soft tissue envelope and weaker cartilaginous frameworks. Furthermore, most Asian patients additionally require augmentation of the nasal dorsum and projection of the nasal tip, which complicates the short nose correction procedure.

In Short Nose Correction, the most important part is “skillfully lowering the angle of the nasal tip.” In order to do this, various surgical techniques are required. Since most patients are revision patients, the types of cartilages used also vary. Also, the doctor needs to take into consideration the degree of the nose, the density of soft tissues, and the amount of pressure applied to the nasal tip. With years of surgery experiences and know-how. we, Answer Plastic Surgery, promise you the best results.



 Operation Method

  • Short Nose Correction is an advanced level procedure that restructures and extends the tip of the nose. 

  • This procedure requires significant caution because if both the skin and cartilage aren't extended enough, the overall shape of the nose won't be in a stable condition.

  • If the skin is overextended, the cartilage may bend due to pressure or shorten. This is why you need a proficient doctor to perform the procedure.

  • In order to maintain the cartilage after the relocation, we use the order-made artificial cartilage personalized just for you.

Short Nose Correction is Recommended...

  • if you have a raised nose tip
  • if you have a crooked nose after the surgery
  • if you have a sharp nose bridge but a short nose tip
  • if you want both Nose Bridge - Correction & Augmentation and Short Nose Correction
  • if your nostrils are overexposed from the frontal view

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do you know whether you have “distortion” after the surgery?

If you have an infection for a long period of time, the soft tissues conglutinate (stick). This applies pressure on the cartilage of the nose wing and lifts the entire nose upward. A nose with “distortion” often overexposes the nostrils or outlines the prosthesis.

Q: How do you change a “distorted nose” back to its natural look?

The cartilage is first excoriated (removed) from the surrounding tissues. Then, it is supported with orthotics after it is repositioned to its proper angle.

Q: How do you extend a short nose?

At Answer Plastic Surgery, we use various techniques for all cases of short nose correction. We generally use personalized artificial cartilages (fixed type; inflexible) or create downward pressure by using ear cartilage (unfixed type; flexible).

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.
