In some people, their nostrils can be seen from the frontal view. Also, the upturned nose usually has small nasal ala and short nose bridge, creating a negative facial image. The upturned nose/short nose is considered to be very complicated to correct its shape. Therefore, it is critical to understand an exact cause of the upturned nose/short nose, and it should be approached with proper methods.
Septal cartilage or ear cartilage is grafted onto the lower portion of the ala of the nose in order to correct the upturned nose. In case of short nose columella, it can be corrected by raising the height of the nose while transplanting the cartilage like batten onto the lower portion of the nasal tip.
If the nose turns up due to it is too short, various surgical methods should use in compound. The short nose should be elongated by correcting the septal cartilage and the lower portion of the nasal septum as well as releasing the overlapped portions of cartilages.
This is one of the most complicated nose surgeries. It requires the dissection of mucous membrane between the septum cartilage and the nasal bone, and the septal cartilage and the nose alar cartilage. Cartilages are used in compound to fix the nose tip so it will not be contracted further. The patient will be asked to refrain from smoking and do a massage therapy after the surgery.
