The treatment procedures is surgery

  • The first step is to anesthetize the area which also serves as tumescence of the thin tissue for easier dissection. Dissect out anatomical layers of the total skin covering of the alar cartilages carefully. It is very skills dependent as The alar cartilages is very thin like paper. After it is separated cleanly, it is then pulled to the required height and forward, then fixed in that position to give a lifted appearance.
  • The nose bridge narrowing may be done with nose columella lifting surgery, or the tip refinement surgery. The job is called the nose job or rhinoplasty.

Post operation recovery

The stitches are removed in about 5-7 days after the surgery. The improved looks will be visible in about a week time. Further improvement until natural may take couple of weeks.
