[JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea] Golden ratio of the nose to the face and Upturned nose and Short nose correction

Today I would like to talk about
"Golden Ratio" of the nose to the face
Procedures of "Upturned nose and Short nose correction"

  • Golden Ratio of the nose to the face

The ideal length of the nose is one-third of the length of the face and the ideal nasolabial angle is between 95 degree and 105 degree

If the nasolabial angle exceeds 110 degree, the nose tip is upturned. As a result, the nostrils are overly exposed from a frontal view and the nose looks short.

  • Procedures of Upturned nose and Short nose correction
Those who have an extremely short and upturned nose and those whose nostrils are overly exposed:
  1. Repositioning of alar cartilages using surgical suture
    -Without cartilage graft, we reposition the alar cartilages using a special suture technique to extend the length of the nose.
  2. Septal cartilage graft
    -We can extend the length of a nose by inserting a septal nasal cartilage (nose cartilage), costal cartilage (ear cartilage), or donated costal cartilage.
  3. Nose lengthening procedure using ear cartilages
    -Using an ear cartilage, we can extend the alar cartilage.
  4. Hybrid septal cartilage graft
    -For those who have extremly small septal nasal cartilages, we perform this procedure using septal nasal cartilages, ear cartilages, and donated costal cartilages, in order to extend their nose length.

Experience in Fat grafting and Lateral Canthoplasty in Korea

This is Melod Low from Singapore who had Full Face Fat Grafting by Dr. Chul hwan Seul and Lateral Canthoplasty by Dr. Kim from JW Plastic Surgery Center Korea last year.

The main reason why I have done Full face fat grafting was because I wanted to have some volumes on my face to have more pretty and look younger!!!

Nose surgery with rib cartilage in Korea

Many people, who are considering plastic surgery, are reluctant because they worry about foreign materials being put in their bodies. What options are there for them? For people who want a nose job, their own septal cartilage and ear cartilage can be used to help them get the nose they want. These two cartilages are the most commonly used materials for the augmentation of the nose. What if these are not enough for the augmentation? How about rib cartilage in our chest?

1. What is rhinoplasty with rib cartilage?

Rib cartilage is bigger than septal cartilage or ear cartilage. It is able to provide enough material to modify your nose any way you would like, whether it is lengthening your nose or increasing the height you’ll notice a drastic change.

Sometimes the body will reject foreign materials, however, this doesn’t occur in the case of using rib cartilage. As well, the absorption rate of rib cartilage is much lower than other cartilages so it is able to maintain the shape of the …
