Broad Nose

Broad Nose gives the face a less 3 dimensional in appearance.

Broad Nose 

Broad Nose is a fairly common occurrence in Asian facial features.

Broad Nose by other name, Wide Nose.

A broad nose is usually referring to the bridge of the nose that is broad. It looks flattened dome on a cross sectional view. People has a mistaken belief that it refers to the broad nose wing, which is a wide alar cartilages. However, it is alright to think broad nose refers to both occurring simultaneously or singly.

What is the definition of Broad Nose?

Put simply, the nose bridge or the nose wing or both are broad. Looking from the front, the nose looks flattened.

2 anatomical structure causing a broad nose

Broad Nose

Broad Nose: This case has a broad nasal bone of the bridge but not a broad alar cartilages. Hence, such person has a broad flattened nose from the front. Note the broadness of the pyramid peak at the top  on the left side, which is brought together after fracture at the base, to give a pointed narrow  peak, the nasal bridge. 

  1. Broad nasal bridge bone causing Broad Nose
  2. Broad alar cartilages or the nasal wing causing Broad Nose

 

 

Broad Nose: The magic figure

The bridge is generally taken to be broad when it is wider than half of the nasal wing is called Broad Nose. It is more of an arbitrary figure.

For the lady, a narrower nasal bridge is consider the standard of beauty.

Causes of Broad Nose

Broad Nose can be caused by some factors such as:

  • genetic. Some are better endowed than other, congratulation. Sorry for the rest. But the good news is that it can be corrceted easily with the new technology
  • ethnicity. Some ethnic such as the Caucasian, Middle Eastern,and South Asian usually has a high bridge. Many Mongoloid and Asian tends to has flatter nose.

Broad Nose | Flat Nose | A flat nose has a shorter nose as the bridge is imperceptibly after it merges with the side of the face as it go upward from the tip of the nose, giving an apperance of a broad nose.

Broad Nose & Facial beauty concept

The rule of 1/3, one third, both vertically and horizontally gives an idea/concept of beauty and how Broad Nose comes about. Please refers to the diagram.

Broad Nose: Treatment

The key to the treatment of Broad Nose is to bring the 2 side bone together to make it more narrow. First it has to fracture the nasal process of the maxilla bone which forms the 2 sides of the nose. After the fracture which is carefully calibrated, measured, and designed in a linear line, using a special mini chisel, causing least trauma, the bone is brought together, and let to heal, to get a beautiful narrower bridge.

Knowing where is the anatomical causes of flat nose, it is easy to correct the deficit. Lift up the bridge and the nose tip will automatically correct the Broad Nose.

Broad Nose: Caution

Never goes to the unlicensed practitioner who uses the silicone gel injection to hopefully brings about a longer nose through the tip projection, to treat Broad Nose. It will ruin the nose. It will be very difficult to remove. There are too many complications. I will show you cases i have removed.

The best option is using a nose implant or a cartilage from the rib cage or the ear, or inside the nose septum.
