Closed Rhinoplasty for droopy tip repair

Facial plastic surgeons encounter a number of diseases that can cause a droopy nose and add to the appearance. A droopy nasal tip may be to blame for the “hang-down” appearance, or there may be a more general issue made worse by structural problems further up the nose.

For example, a nasal hump can cause lines to flow from the middle of the nose to the tip, accentuating a droop even more.

Droopy Nose Rhinoplasty Consultation

Patients will meet with a plastic surgeon for a consultation prior to any drooping nose rhinoplasty in order to go over their surgical goals and ask any questions they may have regarding the surgery.

In order to demonstrate each patient what rhinoplasty outcomes might appear like on their own face, digital imaging is employed to create virtual before and after photographs during this session. They can see firsthand the potential benefits of rhinoplasty and the effect a straighter nose would have on the face.

Droopy Nose Surgery

After evaluating the nose, our facial plastic surgeons choose a suggested line of action.
He works closely with each patient to understand their goals for rhinoplasty and thoroughly describes the procedure. With more than 30 years of rhinoplasty experience, he can manage a variety of issues and aims and tailor the procedure to the individual patient.

In order to fix a droopy nose, the doctor will conduct a rhinoplasty after the initial consultation and preoperative procedures.

To prevent future droopiness, he will rotate or lift the nasal tip, then add or rebuild support with cartilage taken from the patient.

Rhinoplasty can simultaneously minimize a nasal hump and an oversized nose.
In some instances, the two surgical procedures go hand in hand because cartilage removed from the nose to reduce its size can later be used to strengthen the nasal tip.

The end result of a drooping nose rhinoplasty is to create a nose that doesn’t emphasize any one particular feature and fits naturally and proportionately in the face.

Droopy Tip Rhinoplasty Recovery

Patients will need a few weeks to recuperate from droopy tip rhinoplasty. Patients can anticipate wearing an outer splint for roughly a week and a light dressing for a day.

For the first two to three weeks after surgery, patients should refrain from engaging in any physical activity that could cause a physical blow to their healing nose.

Swelling and bruises will progressively go away throughout this period.
Although the surgery’s outward indications disappear in a matter of weeks, interior healing could take up to a year.

Every crooked nose rhinoplasty patient receives aftercare instructions from The Portland Center For Facial Plastic Surgery, along with information on how to recognize uncommon potential problems including bleeding and infection.
