Ptotic Nasal Tip Surgery Point

  • STEP 01

    A portion of the tip cartilage will be excised to allow the cartilage to move upwards to reduce the length of the nasal tip.

  • STEP 02

    Autologous cartilage will be inserted into near nasal septum in order to function as a supporting structure which props natal tip cartilage up.

  • STEP 03

    In extreme cases of ptotic nose tips, a small incision will be made to excise a segment of muscle inside the nose.

  • STEP 04

    Autologous cartilage fixes the nose firmly to prevent reoccurrence of ptotic nose. Nose augmentation can be performed in conjunction with this type of surgery with implant insertions if the patient wishes for a heightened and raised nasal bridge.
