Long Nose/Arrowhead Nose Surgery
An ideal nose is one that is one-third the vertical length of the face. If it is any longer, it will disrupt the overall balance of the face and make the person appear older and even somewhat unapproachable. A nose in the shape of an arrowhead is characterized by an excessively long nasal septum or a drooping alar cartilage in the nose tip, and this can be addressed by a surgical procedure that serves to raise the nose tip.
Duration of Surgery
After 7days or 14days (dissolvable thread may be used)
Methods of Long/Arrowhead Nose Surgery
Alar Cartilage Plasty
The alar cartilage that is drooping downward is fixed in the nasal septum to raise the nose tip.
Nasal Septum Plasty
If the nose appear long because of a long nasal septum, the tip of the septal nasal cartilage is partially resected and the nose tip is rotated up.
