Short Nose Correction


Short Nose refers to a short length from the beginning of the nose to the tip. Upturned nose can be either a short length with entire nose being elevated or a long length with the tip being upturned. Depending on the shapes of nose, such conditions can be corrected by using autologous tissue or septal cartilage.

Short Nose Correction Procedure

Most cases of short nose and upturned nose comes with low nose bridge. Therefore, it is recommended to raise the nose bridge with artificial implants such as silicone, gore-tex, and etc.


■ Autologous Cartilage Insertion on the Nose Tip

A moderately upturned or short nose can be lengthened by inserting autologous cartilage (septal cartilage or ear cartilage) between alar cartilage and septal cartilage.

■ Nose Extension with Septal Cartilage

This method is used when autoplasty cannot lengthen the nose adequately.
After nosewing cartilage and the interior cartilage are separated, the upturned or short tip is pulled down, and septal cartilage is inserted to prevent the tip from being pulled back up.
