Young professional woman from los angeles has rhinoplasty

Procedure Details

One of the most common reasons for a rhinoplasty is under projection which is defined as the nasal tip drooping downward towards the lip, especially when smiling. Using cartilage from the nasal septum, the tip is able to be supported to lift it and using other surgical techniques, rotate it, to improve the appearance. Remove of a nasal hump on the bridge of the nose, that is usually formed by both cartilage and bone further defines the profile and enhances the overall profile and 3/4 view of the face. The nasal tip is refined by removing some of the cartilage to decrease its width and sometimes through the use of sutures that further narrow and enhance its appearance.
