Medical Name: Nasal Bridge Augmentation
Also Known As: Nasal Implants for Flat Noses
The nose along with the eyes can make a significant difference to one’s looks. The size and shape of the nose varies with geographic and genetic factors. In certain ethnic groups, the nose is commonly found to be too large, too broad, and relatively flat. While in some people, the nose may be too flat due to a lack of bone cartilage in the bridge of the nose. Sometimes an accident can also render a nose flat due to loss of bone cartilage. The wide nose or flat nose then becomes an issue that can affect one’s appearance or confidence.
However, there is hope now. Nasal Bridge Augmentation also known as Nasal Implants or Nasal Contouring can help solve the problem. A silastic or synthetic fibre material is implanted into the nose, or some cartilage from the ear may be grafted onto the nose. Another option is to use a filler such as Restylane® Injections to raise the dorsum of the nose. This results in a narrower, deeper, sharper or more prominent nose that can make the person look attractive and several years younger too.
If you live in the Midwest, the only surgeon to see is Dr. Wafik A Hanna, a board certified facial cosmetic surgeon with over 30 years of experience specializing in Nasal Bridge Augmentation, while serving clients in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan. Dr. Wafik Hanna successfully performs hundreds of Nasal Implants or Nasal Contouring every year, and has been well-recognized as a top specialist in this procedure, throughout his distinguished career.
During this procedure, Dr. Hanna will make an incision inside the nose and insert the silastic implant through the nostrils. The procedure is conducted under general anesthesia and there are no scars after the procedure. To ensure that the procedure is effective and there are no injuries during the recovery period, the patient needs to wear a protective plastic cap on the nose for a week.
