Most noses need only minor refinements in one or more of these areas:
- Projection of the bridge
- Width of the nasal bones
- Straightening of the nasal bones
- Tip definition and nasolabial angle (i.e. the length of the nose)
Subtle and artistic enhancement in 1,2,3, or all 4 areas mentioned fine tunes the nose without changing its character. There are patients who need only tip refinement, and this can be accomplished by sculpting the tip cartilage.
