If the noseball is wide or asymmetric, it looks like an arrow nose due to sagging, etc., it is necessary to improve the face image through appropriate corrective surgery.

Custom surgery is required to create a nose shape that fits the individual’s face shape or image.

No need to worry.

It is possible to perform surgery by maintaining the height between the eyes and the eyes and raising only the lower nose bridge so that the space between the eyes is not visible.

As for the cartilage used in nose surgery, septal cartilage, ear cartilage, and costal cartilage can be used.

Each cartilage has its pros and cons. When using the septum, no additional incision is required because it is taken from the inner incision during surgery. It is mainly used to erect the nose and has excellent support with flat cartilage. Ear cartilage is the most commonly used among autologous cartilage, and has a higher elasticity than the septum, making it a good material for natural shape of the tip of the nose. Chest cartilage is used when it is difficult to use ear or septal cartilage and has excellent support.

General reoperation is possible after the wound has healed. It may be about 6 months later, but if it is a re-operation in case of inflammation, it is recommended to perform the operation again after the inflammation symptoms have subsided or the prosthesis has been removed and the sensitive nose and tissue have recovered to some extent.

In the case of general auxiliaries, daily life is possible in 5-7 days, and the overall swelling usually disappears after 2 weeks. However, it may take up to 3 months to completely relieve the swelling.

It may regenerate slightly during the healing process of bones, but it does not grow like the original hooked nose.

Hawk nose is usually a case where the nose where the nose bone meets the nasal septum is excessively protruding.In the case of surgery, the protruding part is cut off with a fine knife and an osteotomy, and the nose is narrowed or the nose is gathered as needed in consideration of the height of the hook. Sometimes surgery is accompanied.

Considering the time when the filler was added, check how much it has been absorbed, and if the filler remains, it is usually necessary to dissolve the filler one week before surgery and check the original nose height before surgery.
