Rhinoplasty for a wide nose

Many of our Houston rhinoplasty patients main concern with their nose will be the width.  This could be a wide bridge due to wide nasal bones.  Other patients may be concerned about a bulbous broad tip due to wide or redundant nasal tip cartilge.  Lastly, other patients may be concerned about wide or flared nostrils.

Treating wide nasal bones requires osteotomies (controlled fractures) to narrow these bones and create a more slender refined bridge.  Tip contouring may include reducing the size and width of the tip cartilage, suture techniques to reshape the cartilage, and cartilage grafts which are usually taken from the septum when correcting a deviated septum with septoplasty.

Widened and flared nostrils can be narrowed with Weir incisions removing excess nostril skin and bringing the nostrils in.
