Nose Aesthetics and Nose Drop: Causes and Treatment Options

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to correct the shape or function of the nose for aesthetic or functional reasons. While common results of this surgery include a more beautiful nose shape and a better respiratory tract, complications sometimes called “nose drop” can also occur. In this article, under the guidance of Dr Emre Özenalp, we will examine the causes of nose drop after rhinoplasty and how it can be prevented.

What is Nose Drop?

Nose drop or “nasal deformity” means that the nose sags or slides from its normal position. This condition can be seen after rhinoplasty or nose surgery. Falling nose can go beyond an aesthetic problem and can cause breathing problems.

Causes of Nose Drop After Rhinoplasty

Falling nose after rhinoplasty can be based on various reasons. Here are some common reasons:

Weak Cartilage Supports: Nasal cartilage supports the shape and function of the nose. If cartilage structures are weakened or not sufficiently supported during surgery, the risk of nose drop increases.

Surgical Errors: Inappropriate surgical techniques or mistakes made during surgery can lead to a nose drop after rhinoplasty.

Healing Process: The postoperative healing process is important for the nose to take the desired shape after rhinoplasty. If the nose is not provided with the necessary support during the healing process, the nose may fall.

Anatomical Factors: Some patients may be at risk of nose drop due to their natural anatomical structure. Therefore, each patient is different and the surgeon should take these factors into consideration.

How to Prevent Nose Fall After Rhinoplasty?

The following steps are important to prevent nose drop after rhinoplasty:

Choosing an Experienced Surgeon: Choosing an experienced and expert surgeon can minimise mistakes and complications during surgery.

Cartilage Supports: The surgeon should properly support the cartilage structures during rhinoplasty.

Follow-up of the Healing Process: The surgeon should closely monitor the healing process and provide support when necessary.

Anatomical Evaluation: Since each patient is different, the surgeon should consider the anatomical structure of the patient and plan the operation accordingly.

Falling nose after rhinoplasty is a complication that should be handled carefully. By working with an experienced surgeon such as Dr Emre Özenalp, it may be possible to achieve the best results after rhinoplasty and prevent such complications. Regular postoperative check-ups and compliance with your surgeon’s recommendations are important for the health and aesthetics of your nose.
