I think the width between the eyes will decrease if you do a high bridge, but the decrease wont be THAT big...

The perfect width is ONE EYE's length between your two eyes.
If its much more than that, you can consider doing EPI.

Thats what I gather. :)
New nose please~

Since I havent seen a septal defined nose tip let alone touch it, I really cant imagine how hard it can be.

Does anyone here have a septal defined nose tip? Purely septal cartilage.
Can anyone share their experience?

Is it really hard?


Hi Keenose,

Wonder if you`re the same person as the one I chatted with on MSN with the same nickname " Keenose" Haha.... "she" told me she is "Korean" and sent me a few photos supposedly hers but I really doubt so cos her nose is too nice to touch let alone augment it! LOL

I do have SEPTAL cartilage transfer on my tip. I would not classify it as "hard" but it feels like any other normal nose tips (go touch it for real) although i do have a columella strut so perhaps it makes it harder?? LOL

IF one cannot decide on the material to use on his/her nose, I suggest you LEAVE IT AS IT IS and give the thought a rest because either way, someone somewhere would be unhappy because (right) it is NOT perfect. I am beginning to wonder if people really understand or read posts clearly... the beating round the bush is really over the top ! (MORE OF THE SAME !!)

Hate it or love it, get your facts right and MOVE ON ...:))

Happy nose hunting.... I found my nose and love it to bits! Am BACK, mynose !! Whats up ??

Kwell

PS( Am a happy bunny )


Hey Kwell,

Nono.. I am not that Korean. haha I am not korean! :)

So septal nose tip is not really really hard lah? It feels like normal nose right?

Are you happy with your nose now? I remember you were waiting for it to deswell or settle in... :)

Now, this is more interesting !! Who is this lovely chap? I see some interesting work here, but some are aweful. Do you guys like the first example: http://www.drtseng.com.tw/index.html


I love the second patient's augmented nose - its natural looking with lovely height at radix, smooth bridge, beautiful angle between nose tip and upper lip with strong alar. 7/10 !

Anyone here knows more of this chap? Charges

I personally dont like the 1st example. The rest are better!

I did asked about whether this cud be done in Thailand but Drs told me that your skin will tear if you do do that.(using Silicone)

wasadeha,

that is true what the doctors said to you. You cannot extend the tip of the nose with silicone. If a doctor thinks that an L implant is used to extend the tip, run away from him. L implant is to keep the implant from shifting overtime, and for collumella shaping. When a doctor uses it to project the tip, it is asking for an extrusion.
However, if an L implant is placed correctly, extrusion should not be an issue for Asians.

Only cartilage can be used to extend the tip.

thanks. WHO, so cartilage is used for tip projection?... how abt the picture above... is gortex used?.. i suppose Silicone cannot be used as its too hard and thus wud cause too much pressure on the skin.

I did asked the Dr on gortex and they say its way too soft for definition and thus cant be used for tip projection.

He also warned that gortex will be hard to remove as tissues are absorbed it.


As for the picture above, can anyone tell me wad material is that?

Is the implant made up of two pieces?.. It seems an 'I' implant followed by something else for the tip projection?
Anyone knows wad that is?

For tip projection or extension, it is always either septal cartilage or ear cartilage.

Above, he's got sheets of goretex trimmed to the shape of a bridge to fit in the curve of the nose. Then, he's got cartilage for the tip.

Hello my dear.....

I did tell you before that the tip can only be enlongated sufficiently enough using autologous tissues i.e. CARTILAGE GRAFTS (usually septal or rib for strength)

The material on the picture is GOR-TEX (it is sheets like piled on layer by layer, silicone is a BLOCK FORM!) Dr. Tseng only uses GOR-TEX and I shape silicone implants !! REMEMBER............:)

I also do NOT buy the idea that gortex can add any real projection to the tip cos its just so SOFT. It might give the VOLUME to the tip but in my opinion, HARDLY definition. I like the volume filling it gives, but the texture sucks ....... at least for me cos I prefer the stronger material. (MAN?) LOL

FORGET about Silicone stick for the tip - PLEASE...............................whatever you do, listen to me for ONCE. I welcome questions.

Cheerio,

Kwell

Same here Keenose ! Look at the radix ! Its bumpy and shows an implant like material - YUCKS and looks FAKE - plain and simple. I must confess I do find the last example appealing...... lovely enlongation of tip and reduction of angle.

However, this brings me to the conclusion that with the same material one can get a different outcome on a different nose. WAH............. no fun eh? Live or die ? Haha ................:)
I guess rhinoplasty is still the most challenging facial procedure, come what may ! I feel much better when one of the staffs told me this doctor has seen many patients with as many as 7-8 previous nose surgeries prior to seeing them. Oh well................. now I shouldnt feel bad about mine, should I? LOL
