Concern

Flat/Crooked Nose

Book a Consultation

INTRODUCTION

Flat or Crooked Nose

One distinctly Asian concern is having a flat nose bridge, sometimes with a bulbous tip. With the nose and chin being such prominent features of our faces, nose enhancements should be effective yet naturally subtle.

The flat nose bridge can be made worse by having a bulbous or down-pointing nose tip. All these consequently make the middle part of the face look less prominent.

Occasionally, a protruding cartilage or bony structure may also make the nose appear crooked.

EVIDENCE-BASED METHODS

Nose Enhancement Treatments

Dr. Chua is highly trained and experienced in medical rhinoplasty, having learnt how to use a combination of fillers, botulinum toxins as well as thread lifts to reshape the nose in a minimally invasive manner WITH minimal downtime, immediate effects and lasting results nearing that of surgical rhinoplasty for a fraction of its cost.

How to choose between a filler or a nose threadlift? It comes down to the individual skin type to decide who would benefit more from which. Neurotoxins are the only treatment that can help relax nose muscles to rebalance hyperactive muscles, so sometimes they need to be used in combination.

Ellansé is a collagen stimulator that can be used to strategically lift and volumise the nose without any spreading or displacement.

Nose thread lift is a safe and effective way to lift the nose when done right. However, it may not be suitable for everyone.

Neuro-toxins can relax muscles around the nose and sharpen the nose tip. It can be combined with thread lifts or volumising injections to achieve the best result.

In general, neurotoxins are irreplaceable if they are suitable treatments. But how to choose between fillers or threadlifts? It really comes down to the patient and their individual condition. Any treatment centre that promises you a treatment without properly assessing (photographing and examining – touching- your nose), should be avoided.

Most of the time, threads are better for definition and tip projection. However, fillers are still extremely useful for precise correction and also for big volume changes that may be needed.

Both procedures entail some risk, so some doctors prefer not to do this procedure if they’re not fully trained or apprehensive about it. Nose fillers if done wrongly can result in blindness and skin necrosis, while thread lifts can cause thread migration, extrusion, infection and scarring. Both procedures can cause deformities if not done well.

Our advice is to find a doctor who will explain risk carefully to you but yet give you the confidence that they can manage your complications. This can be done over a detailed consultation as well as sharing of his or her past experience. When done properly, nose fillers/threads are an extremely worthwhile and gratifying procedure.
