How can you understand you have a droppy nose?
Normally there is 90 degree angle between lips and tip of the nose. If you have a droppy nose this angle will decrease. Especially droppy nose will be seen from the side angle.
What are the reasons for a droppy nose?
There is two main reasons for droopy nose. First one is the weakness of the nasal tip cartilage structure. This weak cartilage can not stand against the gravity as a result the tip of the nose tends downward. The second one is the strenght of the laughing muscles.
Surgery can be a solution for patients with droppy nose, without any intervention on the nasal dorsum. Just after this intervention, usually splint and cast using are not necessary. General anesthesia is recommended.
How the operation is performed for droopy nose?
With the advancement in technology nose surgery became easier. It is possible to have your dream nose with our atraumatic technics. The surgery is performed at the hospital and lasts 2 hours. Surgery of patients with straight nasal dorsum will take less time which is 45 minutes.
How is the healing process after droopy nose surgery?
Patients can be discharged on the same day after droopy nose surgery. But if there are multiple deformities which adressed at the same surgery, then the patient should stay one night after the surgery.

When the swelling at the nose tip will decrease?
It is necessary to wait one year for the nasal tip swelling to completely go down. You may not like the image you see for the first time, as swelling occurs at the tip of the nose after nose surgery. But after 1 year, the result you see in the mirror will satisfy you.

Does the nose tip drop after the surgery?
In order not to experience it again, the cause of droopy nose tip should be investigated first. If the nasal tip muscles are weak, which causes the nasal tip to be drooping, the strengthening of these muscles should be planned; If the laughing muscles are strong, these muscles should be weakened. Therefore, nasal tip drooping is not observed after the operation.
