Nose Reshaping Surgery

Three basic elements are needed for a beautiful nose. They are complete, upright and properly sized. So the key to a successful nose orthopedics surgery is to design and carve an aesthetically beautiful nose prosthesis.

Aesthetical Standard for a Nose

The nose is in the center of the face, forming a cone on the surface, which plays an important role of beautiful appearance. Its shape is quite different in different ethnics. For European and American people, high bridge of nose is beautiful while for Chinese people, delicate and narrow nose is beautiful. Here are specific statistics for a beautiful nose:

1.Length of a nose is 1/3 of one’s face. It is generally as long as 6-7.5cm.
2.Width of nose, the distance between edges of two nostrils, is generally 70% of length of nose.
3.upper edge of nose is as wide as 1cm, the top of nose is 1.2cm wide.

The height of a nose isn’t generally lower than 9mm, 12mm for men and 11mm for women. Low nose is lower than 4mm and should be raised to 7-11mm.

The ideal height for a nose top is 1/3 of its length, 26mm for men and 23mm for women. Nose lower than 22mm is called low nose.The shape of a nose top is round. Nostrils are symmetric ellipsoid towards top.The out edge of nostrils is not out of vertical line of the inner canthus, otherwise it’s called nosewing hypertrophy.

Types of unbeautiful nose shapes:

Most people think raising bridge of nose could make it beautiful, which is one-sided. It is not only low bridge of nose but also other many factors that make one’s nose unbeautiful:

Low Nose: It’s a common unbeautiful shape of noses, in which the bridge of nose is lower than 4mm, nasion and nose top are low and flat or even round.

Hawk Nose: It is featured by hump deformity on nasal dorsum, over-long and droopy nasal top, bridge of nose being stood out and wide and long nose, which gives the impression of being tricky.

Fat and big nose: It is featured by hyperplasia of nose skin and soft tissue, fat and big, wide nostrils and fat nosewing.

Wide Nose: Width of nose is 70% of its length. Two side of nose are far from each other with broad nasal bridge like a frog’s nose.

Unbeautiful shape of nose top: The deflects of this type is flat and low nose top, broad and fat one, flat and high one and round nose top.

Unbeautiful Shape of Nostrils: They are flat nostrils, round nostrils, snub nose, too big or small nostrils and even nasal atresia.

Nose Orthopedics is Not Only Humping Nose

The traditional nose orthopedic surgery is to hump nose with prosthesis with no regard of different situations. But many people are still not beautiful after surgery. It’s because deflects of noses are not changed. It’s nose reshaping surgery that makes nose beautiful and well-shaped. This surgery is integral design for the nose as a whole. It needs to see whether there are other unbeautiful parts like fat nose top, camel hump nose, fat nosewing, etc. or the nose is just low before doing the nose-humping. And the patient’s career, age, facial form, features are all considered to make a suitable nose prosthesis. During the surgery, prosthesis is put into one’s nose after some adjustment of nose’s shape. The nose can be beautiful after all those have been done. To some extent, nose humping differs from nose reshaping is like parts differs from whole. Reshaping requires higher skills and better master and research of physical aesthetics.

Common Materials for Nose-humping

Solid silica gel is recently common material for nose-humping. Although its ratio for complications is amount to 5%-20%, it is still the first choice for clinical use because of its good biocompatibility and low price. Its main disadvantage is that it cannot set up a blood circulation with other organism and form tissue connection. It is surrounded by fiber tissue and can poke out of skin through weak parts. And contracture of fibrous capsule can cause projection of silica gel prosthesis so as to affect appearance.

Artificial bone: It is mainly hydroxyapatite. It is of good biocompatibility, innocuous, non- teratogenic, non-allergic, non-carcinogenic and no other side effects. But it doesn’t work well for those of low nose because it cannot support things.

Because it has good biological compatibility and unique porous structure, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, non-allergic and no other side effects, and human tissues cells and the blood vessels can be grown into porous to form connection, as self-connection, people are satisfied with its nose-bridge raising effect. But it’s quite expensive that even a simple nose-bridge costs above 10,000 pounds, which will affect its general application.

Compared with conventional medical surgery, nose reshaping cannot be measured as a major one, but very complex, which can be seen from two aspects: the design before surgery and the skill during the surgery, which raises the high requirements of doctors. Of course, not all those people have to amend many parts. For most people, one or two parts are enough. And it just spends as much as 1000~3000 RMB when ordinary silica gel is used as prosthesis, while the cost of PTFE prosthesis is up to million..
