Nose bridge Plasty

Basic Information

Nose bridge Plasty is divided into two procedures: Implant and Osteotomy

Nose bridge being low or wide may make the eyes appear further apart from each other than they actually are, and create a flat profile. If the nose bridge is not straight, it may make a person appear too strong or masculine, more mature than she/he actually is. Moreover, it may cause problem breathing, rhinitis, or other nasal inconvenience.

By having the nose bridge augmented, or chiseled, clients will be able to obtain a sleek, prominent nose that balances, and adds a sharper touch to the face. It could also straighten out the problems clients had concerning the nose.  Nose bridge Plasty at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY have two options – augmentation through implant, and osteotomy. Each client will be consulted with Dr. Cha to be decided what procedure may suit the client best.

Nose bridge Plasty at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY will take one hour, with local anesthesia. Another one hour will be needed for the clients after the procedure is done, to get the after surgery treatments provided by MINA PLASTIC SURGERY. Clients will be asked to revisit MINA PLASTIC SURGERY after a week to remove the stitches, and get additional treatments as well as check-ups. Smoking should be stopped 2 weeks prior to, and after the operation as well, for it will help the clients to recover faster, and get a better result.

Types of Bridge Plasty

  • Nose bridge Implant

Nose bridge Implant procedure is done to heighten the nose bridge. Low nose bridge may make the face look flat, and the mouth protruded. Adjusting the height of the nose bridge brings a more clear structure and definition to the face. For the Nose bridge Implant at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY, there are two options of incision – open or closed. This will be designated depending on the shape of each client’s nose.

  • Osteotomy

Osteotomy is done to trim or reposition the nose bridge. This procedure could be applied to hooked, wide, or crooked nose bridges. Depending on the client’s nose shape and condition, Osteotomy could be done bilaterally, or with an implant. 

How it works – Nosebridge  Implant

Nose bridge Plasty

1.Dr. Cha examines the shape, and the bone structure of the nose and decides whether the incision is going to be opened or closed.

  1. Room for a nasal prosthesis is made.
  2. Prosthesis that get implanted is carved according to each client’s nose.
  3. The whole line of the nose – starting from the forehead leading to the tip of the nose – is considered throughout the process of the operation. After the implant is made, Dr. Cha stitches back the incised part up.

Recommended to

Nose bridge Plasty

Osteotomy is recommended for two different types of nose bridges. Hooked nose bridge, and crooked nose bridge. Having a non-straight nose bridge tends to break the balance of the face, and even cause discomfort in breathing. Osteotomy will also work well for those who want to achieve a younger, gentler look- as a bumpy nose bridge may occur an aged, rough appearance. Also, this procedure fixes the problem of bending prosthesis from a former implant procedure.

How it works –Osteotomy

Nose bridge Plasty

Crooked Nose bridge

  • For the case of a crooked nose bridge, the osteotomy focuses on straightening it out.
  • Crooked nose bridge may be caused innately, due to an accident, or the prosthesis bending from a former nose job. This may occur inconvenience in breathing, or other problems involved with the nose functioning.
  • Dr. Cha corrects the deviated nose bridge by fracturing the part that’s sticking out, and aligning the remaining bone.

Crooked Nose bridge and Cartilage

  • Nose bridge deviation may be caused by crooked nose bridge and cartilage. In this case, Dr. Cha will treat both the nose bridge and the cartilage.
  • Nose bridge and cartilage not being straight may occur several discomforts of the nose functioning, and lack of confidence aesthetically.
  • Dr. Cha separates the nasal septum cartilage from the bone, and repositions it in the suited place for them to form a straight line.

Bent Nasal Septum Cartilage

  • Among the noses that appear to be crooked, there are some cases that have bent nasal septum cartilage. Dr. Cha’s job for this example is to perform the operation on the cartilage, in order to give the client a straight nose.
  • This symptom could severely affect the breathing, and it is necessary to fix this problem.
  • Bent Nasal Septum Cartilage Osteotomy involves removing, and repositioning of the cartilage. After examining each client’s nose, Dr. Cha will design and decide how much of the cartilage need to be removed and replaced.

Hooked Nose bridge

  • Having a hooked nose may give the person an aged, masculine look. By getting rid of the bump on the nose bridge, the clients will be able to obtain youthful, softer looks.
  • For a small bump, Dr. Cha will remove both the hooked bone and the cartilage to prevent the bump reforming.
  • For a bigger bump, the bump will be removed, followed by the tying of cartilage on the nose tip. An additional implant will be made, to complete the smooth line of the nose bridge.
