Korean Rhinoplasty - Nose Extension

Beside nose tip correction and curved nose surgery, here is one of the popular Korean rhinoplasty (nose surgery) done by men. But it doesn't mean that this surgery is only for men because women are also welcomed to do this. 

A short nose is a nose when it's been viewed from the front, has its nostrils over-exposed, which also called by upturned nose. Nose extension, also known as short nose correction, is the most difficult one among Korean rhinoplasty and it requires a well-experienced surgeon, which can be found at Wonjin Plastic Surgery. Nose extension is recommended for those who has short nose or over-exposed nostrils like stated before. It also can be done by people who are dissatisfied with their current noses' shape.

A short nose that has an angle excedding 110 degrees from the tip of the nose and lips are the reason why the nostrils is seen to be over-exposed. In this case, many precautions must be taken and considered while dealing with this specific Korean rhinoplasty procedure. Why? Because, if the implant is not be used properly, what will be happened is that it will make the nose even shorter. Therefore, a surgery, based on every individual, is the most thing to be done.

There are 3 surgical methods of nose extension.
