Hooked nose is referred to an uneven and bumpy nasal bridge, which portrays harsh and stubborn appearance. Thus, hooked nose can be widely seen in fairy tales and illustrations, especially to characterize the bad guys or witches, and it can easily become a personal complex for those with a severe case of hooked nose. Now that our society is largely influenced by beauty and appearance, the number of people visiting plastic surgery clinics is continuously increasing.
Nasal hump has a great impact on the appearance; even as little as 1mm difference in height of the hump can change one’s image. Therefore, the method of surgery should be precisely decided upon each individual’s condition by experienced specialist surgeon, and it shouldn’t be considered as simply raising or lowering of the nasal bridge. Also, detailed examination of the nose must be carried out to accurately identify current conditions in order to eliminate recurrence, and generate satisfactory results.
Small nasal hump can be improved by shaving the bump with equipment. However, for severe cases, fracture of the bone is required. Then, join the tip area with cartilage for correction. When bone is fractured, there is a possibility of nasal bridge reducing in height; hence, implant is inserted along with joining of the cartilage to raise nasal bridge. For this method, either artificial implant or autologous tissue is used to design a beautiful nose, so satisfaction level is very high.
Implant is another key element when it comes to rhinoplasty. Implants that are ready-made should not be used, instead, it should be custom made and ordered considering the size of patient’s face and nose. Also, just raising the height of the nose may appear unnatural, so it is vital to design an ideal line that looks natural in every angle.
A minute difference on the nose can significantly change overall appearance, therefore, it should be carefully thought out when deciding on highly skilled and experienced surgeon. Also, thorough consultation must be carried out in order to deliver what you desire and achieve satisfactory results.
