Today, I am going to introduce of nose reshaping surgery.
Nose reshaping surgery = Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is a method of reshaping nose by using artificial implant, self cartilage, dermis, rib cartilage, and donated materials.
Artificial implant – silicone implant and gore-tex implant.
When nose bridge flat and skin is thick, it is effective for dramatic change.
But You should know that NEVER use them for nasal tip.
Because it can cause Infection, and ratio is quite high.
Self cartilage – septal cartilage and ear cartilage
The septal and ear cartilage has a proper thickness and strength and it is very suitable for reshaping the nasal tip.
Self dermis – For nasal bridge augmentation, the dermis taken from the hip. It is used to design the shape of the nose to balance the face.
Self rib cartilage – Rib cartilage is hard enough to support the nose with strong bearing capability. And also has an enough cartilage to use for bridge and tip.
Donated materials – Donated dermis and cartilage. When can not use self cartilage, donated dermis and cartilage can consider.
This woman had a flat nasal bridge and tip. And also the line from her forehead to nasal tip was not smooth. like a hooked nose shape.
So, She wanted to have “nose reshaping surgery“.
Dr. Cho Bae-Jung reshaped her nasal bridge higher and smooth using dermis.
And also reshaped her nasal tip higher using her septal and ear cartilage.
Now, her nose changed to better shape with natural and balanced facial profile.
