What Type of Rhinoplasty Is Needed For My Pig Nose?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I want my nose done fur sure… it doesn’t have a bridge going down and I have almost like pig nostrils. And I have this small mouth that droops down. I don’t have a symmetrical shape face. I never had. Plus I’m getting older. I would like to achieve a more symmetrical, shape, and chiselled cheekbones.
A: The underrotated/underdeveloped nose is part of the overall midface issue which is why the undereye-cheek area is deficient.The undereye-cheek area is best treated by the custom infraorbital-malar implant approach.
The saddle tyope nose requires a rib graft as the whole L-shaped dorso-columellar nasal line needs built up. While the dorsal line can be built up with an implant, derotating and lengthening the tip requires an autogenous grafts construct.
An extended corner of lift can also widen the mouth a bit as well.
