Hooked Nose Reshaping

매부리코 교정의 특징

A hooked nose is also called an aquiline nose because its shape is reminiscent of a hawk beak, with the protruding bone in the middle and the slightly downturned tip.
Hooked nose reshaping has become very popular among women who are concerned about their nose looking masculine.

Deviated Nose Reshaping Procedure

매부리코 수술 방법

A nose with low bridge can appear even lower after its hump has been removed and nasal bones repositioned. Therefore, it is recommended to raise the nose bridge by inserting implants such as silicone or gore-tex.

■ Moderate Aquiline Nose

Simply trimming the hump with a special tool can correct the condition effectively.

■ Severely Aquiline Nose

1. Protruding bone and cartilage are simultaneously resected.
2. Nasal bones are gathered to fill the gap created by excision of bone and cartilage.
3. The curved cartilage on the nose tip is raised, and autologous cartilage
(septal cartilage or ear cartilage) is transplanted to support the structure.
