Procedures for a Whole Nasal Bone Break Down? (photo)
Hi, I was advise to do a septo/rhino/alar-plasty together, to break down my whole nasal bone and straighten it, smaller the width/nostrils and sharpen the tip. With such a procedure, would it be recommended to have a rib cartilage harvested for my nose? Or can the doctor use my old cartilage if he could avoid breaking too many of them? With all that, can my tip be sharp and pointed too? What is the another alternative to prevent depression without harvesting my rib/ear cartilage.
