Droopy Tip Nose Correction Surgery
If you have a droopy tip at the end of your nose, it can make you feel uncomfortable about the way you look and cause you to appear older. The appearance of a droopy tip nose can be caused by an overgrown septum or weak nasal tip cartilage. As you get older, you may start to lose cartilage firmness and develop muscle sagging that causes your nose to droop. Droopy tip nose correction surgery can rebalance the nose to improve your facial features and improve breathing.
How Droopy Tip Nose Correction Surgery Works
Droopy tip nose correction surgery can be performed using local anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon raises the nasal tip and adds patient-harvested cartilage to build support. The outpatient procedure can take up to four hours, along with a couple hours afterward for observation. Incisions may either be made on the outer layer of the nose or inside the nostrils.
Once your surgery is complete, the surgeon will give you instructions on how to take care of yourself during recovery. Some swelling may be expected for the first few days after surgery. You may be able to return to light activities within a few days after the procedure. Many patients return to work in about ten days.
