Pinched Nasal Tip – Richmond Rhinoplasty

Tag Archives: cartilage

rhino_stock_1Having weak, sunken nostrils typically means having a pinched nasal tip. When a person has recessed nostrils as a result of a previous rhinoplasty, genetics, or nasal trauma, plastic surgeons recommend corrective rhinoplasty to make the nose look more balanced.

How do plastic surgeons correct a pinched nasal tip? Often, their main focus is making the lower lateral cartilages (LLCs) straighter. Putting in cartilage grafts is an effective way to better support the LLCs. Having straighter, fuller LLCs will create a smoother transition between the tip of the nose and the nostril rims.
