Long Nose/Arrowhead Nose

The ideal nose length is when the length from the starting point to the end point of the nose is 1/3 of the total length of the face. If the nose is longer than this, the balance of the whole face is broken, it looks older, and the impression is strong. The arrowhead nose is a phenomenon that occurs because the length of the septum is excessively long or the alar cartilage of the nasal tip is winged down. This can be corrected by surgery to raise the nose tip.

How is long nose/arrowhead nose rhinoplasty done?

Alar cartilage plastic surgery

Fix the alar cartilage which is drooped downward to the nasal septal cartilage and raise the tip of the nose.

Nasal septoplasty

When the nasal septal cartilage is long and the nose looks long, remove the end portion of the septum and correct it so that the nose tip rotates upward.

Who needs long nose/arrowhead nose rhinoplasty?

  • When the tip of the nose looks like an arrowhead nose
  • The nose is too long to fit the face ratio

Curved Nose

A curved nose is a state in which the nose is curved or crooked on either side. If the nose is curled, it causes diseases such as nasal congestion, rhinitis, and chronic headache as well as a cosmetic aspect. iWell's curved nose rhinoplasty is highly satisfactory because it improves both the function and shape of the nose.

How is the curved nose rhinoplasty done?

Depending on the degree and location of the warp, and the presence of nasal septal deviation, a variety of surgical procedures are used in combination.

When the degree of warp is mild

Customize the implant as opposed to the warped direction and position it appropriately to make your nose look straight.

When the degree of warp is severe

You may need a nasal septoplasty to straighten the nasal septum and a nasal osteotomy to break and move the outside of the nasal bone. The inwardly bent nasal bone is osteotomized to the outside, and the outwardly curved nasal bone is broken and moved inward. At this time, the asymmetry of the nostril is also corrected.

When Inferior turbinate hypertrophy is accompanied

In the case of curved nose, the nasal cavity spreads to the opposite side of the nasal septum due to the deviated nasal septum, and the inferior turbinate is enlarged to fill the widened nasal cavity, resulting in nasal congestion. In this case, in conjunction with the curved nose correction, the inferior turbinate is partially resected, or the inferior turbinate repair is performed which is reduced with the high frequency procedure.

Who needs curved nose rhinoplasty?

  • When the balance of the face is insufficient because of the curved nose
  • When the implant is deflected after rhinoplasty
  • Nasal septal cartilage in the nose is bent
  • When the nose is bent due to an trauma
