Paranasal Augmentation

Paranasal Augmentation is a surgical procedure to inflate depression above the upper jaw (maxilla) from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. Adding volume to these areas straightens nasolabial folds, achieving younger appearances in general.

Self-Diagnosis of Paranasal Depression

  • - Depression between nostrils and cheeks also makes the center of face look concaved.
  • - Nose tip looks low when it is not.
  • - Nasolabial folds run deeper around the nose.
  • - Nasolabial folds look emphasized even without sagging cheeks.
  • - Depressed areas around the nostrils give the look of protruding mouth.
  • - Gums are protruding.
