Short Nose

Short Nose makes the facial out of proportion.

Short Nose

A short nose is also called an upturned nose. It is upturned because the tip is turned upward exposing the nostrils. Hence, such person has a prominent nostrils facing forward.

Compared to a flat nose, wide nose wing or broad nose, a short nose tip is very common.

What is the definition of Short Nose?

 

Short Nose

Short Nose: A short nose is also called an upturned nose. It is upturned because the tip is turned upward exposing the nostrils. Hence, such person has a prominent nostrils facing forward. The angle of naso-labial is 110 degree or more. 

 

 

 

 

A short nose is usually, although not always, accompanied with a flat nose. It is easy to understand why. When the nose is short, upturned, the nasal wing cartilages is rolled up. In so doing the bridge is shorter. Being shorter, due to rolling up, the tip of the nose is flatter. It is pure logic.

Short Nose: The magic figure

When the upturn or the nose and upper lip angle (naso-labial) exceed 110 degree, it is officially called short nose.

A flat nose is one that has a low nasal bone over the nasal bride. The bridge is the back of the long section of the nose. Usually the tip of the nose is also low where the upper alar (WING of nose) cartilages of the nose is rather flat. The measurement is taken with reference to the forehead and the lip. Obviously, to correct the flat nose will need to address both the areas.

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.

Causes of Short Nose

  • genetic causes of Short Nose. 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.
  • Accident. Where a heavy knock on the bridge could cause fracture of the nasal bone and denting inward causing a flattening of the bridge.
  • Infection. I have just seen a client who has an infection at age 15 resulting lost of nasal bone and part of skin and subcutaneous tissue. Thus a resultant flattened nose. Luckily, her cartilage which is harder than the bone is still intake. How sad that all these years, her friends called her by a nick name of “flat nose girl”. It is a big psychological blow to her.
  • Deviated nasal septum. This is inborn, or congenital in origin.

Never goes to the unlicensed practitioner who uses the silicone gel injection to hopefully brings about a longer nose through the tip projection. 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.
