A nose with a wide alar base and a bulbous tip can mess with the impression people get from you.
In the past, in Korea, this shape of the nose was believed to bring good luck. However, this type of nose is not considered attractive in our times and is considered dull. In particular, many Asians have come to form a dislike for this shape.
The causes of the bulbous nose shape include excess cartilage at the nasal tip, the abnormal spread of cartilage towards the sides of the nose, excess flesh between the nose tip and alae.
We’ll create a customized and slim nasal tip for you based on your facial features and what balances your face best. To achieve this, we revise the cartilage and/or remove the fat and excess tissue. Our goal is to give you the best nose surgery in Korea at JW.
At JW we reduce the size of the nasal tip, corrects bulbous tip through the reshaping of the tip, and refine the thick skin tissues.
The ideal width of the alar base is one-fifth of the facial width. In a beautiful face, the width of the alar base equals the gap between the eyes, the so-called glabella.
When seen from the bottom, It is ideal that the nose looks like an equilateral triangle and the nostrils take up to two-thirds of the total length of the nose.
The surgeon makes an incision into the alar cartilage in the nasal tip to refine the shape.
Suture techniques are used to decrease the distance between the alar cartilage, minimizing the nasal curve and realigning cartilage position.
Excessive subcutaneous tissue is removed from the bulbous nose.
For patients with a wide alar base, we directly reduce the size of each alar. There are several reduction methods available:
This means the nasal tip is positioned proportionally well but the alar are pulled upwards making the nostrils, and the inside of the nose, visible. In this case, the sunken parts are filled up after a particular inner side of the nostrils is incised.
When necessary, and to secure the corrected parts, autoplasty will be transplanted into the inner side of the alar.
A direct incision will be made and the drooping segments will be removed.
We directly narrow the width of the alar by making a partial incision of the inner or outer side of the alar.
