The nose can divide into three parts.
1. Nasal Bone, 2. Upper lateral cartilage, 3. Lower lateral cartilage (tip cartilage)
The shape of nasal tip is related to the nasal tip cartilage.
The nose tip is the most important for the nose shape.
However, Some Asian people’s nose tip is flat with low nasal tip cartilage.
So to make better nose tip, have to correct tip cartilage.
One method is ‘suturing nasal tip cartilage with high position.’
When relocating low nasal tip cartilage to a new nasal tip with a high position, the nose tip can changed to higher with better shape.
As a nasal tip support, generally nasal septum cartilage is used.
When septal cartilage is not enough, can consider rib cartilage.
