Droopy Nose Tip Causes and Treatment

Nasal Tip Ptosis

What Is Nose Tip Drop and How Is It Defined?


Nasolabial angle
The angle between the upper lip and the lower part of the nose (nasolabial angle) is normally wider in women than men. Roughly 100 degrees in women and 90 degrees in men can be considered normal. In this respect, lower values are defined as droopy nasal tip. On the contrary, if this angle is larger than normal, the tip of the nose is seen as excessively raised and the inside of the nostrils can be easily seen when viewed from the front (Pig Nose - Piggy Nose). When you click on the photo above, you can see it in large size....

How Does The Nose Tip Droop?

Drooping of the nasal tip (Nasal Tip Ptosis / A Drooping Nose / Long Nose) can be seen due to the weakening of the cartilage and connective tissue structures that are concentrated between the nasal tip and the upper tongue during the natural aging process; It can also be seen as a result of weakening of the nasal tip support as a result of trauma or surgical applications.

What Are The Effects of Nasal Tip Drop In Terms of Cosmetic Appearance?

In patients with poor nasal tip support, nasal tip drop and a long appearance in the long axis of the nasal tip occur. Especially when smiling, turning down and sideways at the tip of the nose is remarkable. (some patients describe it as a bad guy smile :))

What Are The Health Effects of Nasal Tip Drop?

Falling nasal tip or droopy nasal tip is not only a cosmetic problem. It is also a functional problem as it may cause narrowing of the intranasal airways and nasal congestion. In other words, the complaint of nasal congestion may occur as a result of the nasal tip dropping and may affect the patient's quality of life.

Droopy Nose Tip Treatment

In patients with a droopy nasal tip, cartilage graft support is applied to the tip of the nose with open and closed techniques and the droopy nasal tip is eliminated. If this situation occurs after nose surgeries and trauma, more difficult and complicated procedures may be required (for example, cartilage grafts may be required from the auricle or rib). I do not apply too much nose suspension procedures because the nose tip lifting with thread alone is not permanent and there is a risk that thick permanent suture materials may come out of the skin or cause a reaction.

In the two videos above, there is a view before and after the open technique nose lifting operation performed on a male patient with a drooping nasal tip. During the procedure, the forward and upward orientation movement at the tip of the nose is permanent thanks to the cartilage grafts placed at the tip of the nose and the alar cartilage dome change.

Non-surgical Nose Tip Lifting With Filler Procedure is Not Successful In Very Droopy Nasal Tip Treatment!

Nasal tip filling is not suitable for every patient. In patients with droopy nasal tip, because nasal tip support is already weak; A successful and permanent result cannot be expected from the injection of fillers that create an additional load on the nasal tip.

Nose Lifting Provides Reduction in Nasal Airway Resistance!

When the tip of the nose is raised forward and upward, the angle of the "nasal valve area", which is the narrowest area in the nasal airway, changes and the airway diameter increases. For this reason, nasal congestion is more easily seen in patients with a droopy nasal tip due to spontaneous or traumatic reasons, due to poor nasal support. Small increases in the angle of the nasal valve area provide significant relief in the airway. Thanks to this angle change at the tip of the nose, simultaneous open technical cartilage curvature and nasal tip lift operation in patients with droopy nasal tip and cartilage curvature, and functional positive results (relief in breathing, increase in smell, increase in sleep quality, increase in sports capacity. ..) as well as aesthetically beautiful appearance can be achieved. In temporary nasal filling or medical aesthetic applications, functional positive results cannot be expected as the nose tip angle does not change in real terms; When excessive filling is applied to the tip of the nose, the tip of the nose may turn downward over time and may have a negative effect on the valve area.
