Nose SurgeryFLAT NOSE

flat nose

One of common features of Asian noses is a flat bridge. This may bring an unbalanced profile view 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.

Flat Nose Surgery can benefit

  1. 1. People with flat nose bridge
  2. 2. People with low and wide nose tip
  3. 3. People with overall flat and dull face

How is Flat Nose Surgery performed?

If the tip is relatively high, but the bridge is slightly low compared to the height of tip, only the bridge augmentation using an implant (Silicon or Goretex) can be done. However, in case where both the tip and the bridge are low and flat, it is necessary to reshape both to create a better look. For tip correction, septal cartilage is used to rebuild a framework, but if not sufficient, ear cartilage or rib cartilage can be used instead or together.
