While there are a number of reasons why someone might opt for rhinoplasty, one of the most common reasons is that they think their nose is too large. Before a rhinoplasty you have to make sure you know the ins and outs of the procedure so you know exactly what you are getting yourself into.

There are a number of reasons that contribute to the nose appearing large. Here many factors come into play, from the width of the nose to the height of the bridge. A longer tip of the nose also called a long nose is what is known as an over projected tip. To make the nose more aesthetically pleasing, people often go for rhinoplasty surgery.

Why Fix A Long Nose?

A long nose or over projected tip can be distracting and affects the rest of the features of the face. It can also cause the chin to appear weaker in comparison and cause the eyes and lips to look smaller as well. Since the eyes and lips are generally features people want more visible, the long nose can cause significant problems. Another factor that comes with a long nose is a droopy tip which seems to pull all the features downwards distorting the balance of the face.

What to expect during your rhinoplasty procedure

To correct the over-projection of the nose, Dr. Kallman can perform both open and closed rhinoplasty depending on the patient’s needs. The surgery entails shortening the length of the nose by various maneuvers. Dr. Kallman effectively moves the nasal tip so it is closer to the face using various techniques and skills. He makes sure that the nasal tip is repositioned with perfection as moving the tip too close to the face can also result in issues. The goal is to reposition the tip while making sure that the face remains proportionate. If the distance is too less the nose tip can appear wider, which is the opposite of what the patient is looking for.
Some patients also get surgery on the nasal bridge as well as the tip since most people who have an over projected nose, also have a heightened nasal bridge which can be fixed quite easily by Dr. Kallman.

To conclude, the over projection of the nose is quite a common rhinoplasty surgery that is performed expertly by Dr. Kallman. His experience and skills allow the patient to get a balanced and symmetrical face in the most comfortable setting.
