Can Removing the Nasal Spine Make a Nose Look Shorter

Removing part of the nasal spine can make nose appear shorter
The nasal spine in conjunction with caudal septum is composed of both bone and cartilage. When a trim of the septal cartilage is done and the nasal spine is partially removed, it does make the nose appear shorter. Please refer to our photo gallery for many noses where this has been performed.
