It's normal for people to ask this and that before deciding to do something, moreover for something like Korea plastic surgery. And after eye plastic surgery, breast surgery, face contouring and body contouring, it's time for Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea to answer the frequently asked questions about the popular nose surgery or what we known as rhinoplasty.
Can just the nose tip be corrected?
Just by injecting filer or cartilage grafting may be useless because the structure of the nose has to be modified. At Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea, we raise the sagging cartilage and fixate it to make a short and sharp tip for a much softer appearance.
Will the implants look noticeable?
Unnatural noses from implants usually are generated by incompetent plastic surgeons. If the height of the implant is too high and narrow for the nose bridge, the nose can appear unnatural and the implants can become noticeable. The design techniques used at Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea can ensure outstanding results, enabling customized implants to achieve an inconspicuous fit furthermore, the implant is inserted exactly under the periosteum so that the nose looks natural.
Why does my nose look pinched?
The nose may become unnatural when the nose cartilage is tied together too tightly or if the skin is too thin, which would cause the shape to look pinched. Cartilage should be designed so that the tip is wrapped with the fascia to prevent transparency and deformation of the face by using an absorbent septum support fixture.
What if my nose tip becomes hard?
If the implant is inserted down to the tip, then it may become hard. At Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea, we insert soft autologous cartilage to provide soft nasal tips. The septal cartilage has a wide surface area and it is hard, which is effective for sustaining the nose tip. The ear cartilage is softer than the septal cartilage and more flexible, which is effective for making the tip round.
My nose bone is curved so do I need to get separate surgery for that?
A feature of an aquiline nose is that it is high and big, but if the septal cartilage is over grown the nose may look tilted to one side. The nose tip may also looked droopy because the bridge is sticking out so much. Usually, the nose bone is fractured and centered during the surgery, to correct the nose and tip simultaneously.
Is it true that the bump will grow back?
Sometimes the bone regenerates and a portion of it grows back, but if the fracture is correctly done, then it is perfectly preventable. An aquiline nose requires a delicate and complex surgery, so if patients try to fix it with Botox or Fillers, then the bump may grow back. This is why an exact diagnosis and surgical method at Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea must be chosen.
Does the bone have to be fractured?
Unless the bump is only slightly there, fracturing the bone is more effective. Many feel uncomfortable fracturing their nasal bone, but it is an exact solution to prevent the bump from growing back. For aquiline noses, the bone and cartilage are over grown, which needs to be removed, and the wide bridge should be made narrow.
Isn’t there a low success rate for revision surgeries?
The tissue inside the nose may become damaged after surgery, but 6 months later, the tissue will recover, and you can get natural results after nose revision surgery. Revision surgeries don’t necessary mean that the skin will become thinner or your immunity will decrease. However, an experienced surgeon is required to perform the surgery with minimal damage to the tissue. At Wonjin Plastic Surgery Clinic Seoul Korea, we use soft autologous cartilage and dermis, and an absorbent septal support fixture for the nose tip, to lessen the pressure, and thinner implants so that it won’t be visible.
