Rhinoplasty to widen a narrow nose
The nose can be widened with cartilage grafting techniques to the upper lateral cartilages also known as spreader grafts. There are additional alar batten grafts and tip grafts they can add width. It is a good idea to seek out a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for best results. For many examples, please see the link below to our rhinoplasty photo gallery
Tip of the nose looks a little bit too narrow, how can this be fixed?
The method for correction will be different under different circumstances. If you have a cartilage graft that is visible, this can be removed or reduced. Otherwise, there are various ways to camouflage a result.
