Long Nose Reduction

A long nose can make a face appear elongated and older due to compositional imbalance. It is mainly caused by longer nasal septum or droopy alar cartilage which may require a correction.

Long noses often have bumps in the middle of nose bridge. Such noses can be corrected by straightening the bump and rotating the nose tip upward.

Long Nose Reduction Procedure


■ Elevating the Alar Cartilage

The drooping alar cartilage is fixed to rotate the nasal septum upward and raise the nose tip.

■ Trimming the Septal Cartilage

Trimming the end of septal cartilage can elevate the nasal tip. And if necessary, the resected cartilage can be grafted on the nasal bridge, so that the alar cartilage can be rotated upward.
