# Nose Reduction

A Proportionate Distinction

01 A big nose overshadows
other facial features

Centrally located within the face, the nose also brings the most dimension to our facial silhouette: this makes a nose the most notable facial feature. But what if such a feature was also outstanding in size?

This necessitates nose reduction.
Nose reduction is exactly what it sounds like: reducing the size of an excessively large nose to fit the rest of the face. It makes the nose more appropriate in size in proportion to the face, while allowing the rest of the facial features to shine as well. It also balances the overall facial silhouette, giving you a harmonious, yet distinct, facial impression.

02 A comprehensive procedure:
the surgeon’s skillfulness is critical

Nose reduction is a procedure that involves almost all nasal tissues: from the nose bone that creates the fundamental structures to the cartilage and the soft-tissue.

The upper nose, thick and wide, is reduced in area through interior osteotomy and the bone within is slimmed down with exterior osteotomy. In the lower nose, the goal is to narrow down the width while maintaining or elevating the height, lowering the frontal septum and reducing/restructuring the outer cartilage and the nostrils accordingly. Once the overall size has been set, some reshaping (e.g. sharpening the nose tip, narrowing down the nostril width) is needed as well.

A nose reduction involves such a comprehensive set of improvements:knowledgeable and experienced specialist surgeon.
