Operation Method
Operation Method
If nose is short and looks upturned, we perform a surgery which extends nose length by relocate wing cartilage to extend inside and outside skin of nose at the same time. If it is not enough, we separate tip cartilage and outside cartilage and then use septum cartilage to make a support of nose tip.
- The method which makes nose bridge higher : Short/upturned nose has a visible nostrils and the nose starting point is low and it is located down compare to normal nose that is why the nose looks short. In this case, we need to make the nose bridge higher and then the nose looks longer.
- Cartilage surgery : The cartilage does a main role in making nose tip look upturned. If the wing cartilage which is a part of the nose tip is up, the nose looks upturned. In this case, cutting up the upper part of the wing cartilage and fixing the bridge to downward is making the cartilage look longer downward.
- Cartilage transplantation : If adjusting cartilage is not enough to extend the nose length, we can implant additional cartilage between septum cartilage and wing cartilage to extend for sure. Normally, we use septum cartilage for implant.
- Cartilage surgery+Cartilage transplantation+Nose augmentation : We separate wing cartilage from the nose bridge cartilage and relocate forward and implant septum cartilage in between to fix it not to move back. And we gather the wing cartilage, put silitex longer than original on the nose bridge and implant cartilage on the tip to make it protruded.

Beautiful nose surgery at any angles
Beautiful nose surgery at any angles
To make natural nose harmonizing with your face features, the nasolabial angle which is a meeting point of nose and lips should be balanced with forehead and nose angle in a rhinoplasty. The ideal nasolabial angle for women is 90~100º.
The most important thing in a rhinoplasty is the angle between nose and lips/nose and forehead.
- If the nose and forehead angle is more than 130º : Forehead looks too flat or nose looks too low and overall face features look flat so your face looks wider.
- If the nose and forehead angle is less than 115º : Near eye area might look sunken or forehead looks protruded.
- If nasolabial angle is less than 90º : Nose looks long (called aquiline nose) which gives an aged look.
- If nasolabial angle is more than 110º : Generally we call upturned nose. Nose holes looks upward which gives you kind of countrified impression.
