Wide Nose Surgery
All our rhinoplasty procedures are customized for achieving well-balanced facial features.
Wide Nose Surgery (Osteotomy)
In rhinoplasty, osteotomy involves the ‘excising’ or ‘breaking’ of bones in the nose and is commonly used to make a wide nose narrower.
A wide nose is caused by a low, broad nasal bridge or bone, which makes the nose look out of balance with the rest of the face, particularly the eyes, as it causes them to look farther apart. FacePlus’s experienced surgeons perform osteotomy to reduce the width of the bridge making it more defined and slimmer.
Osteotomy can benefit people with:
- A wide nasal bridge
- Thick nasal bones
How is the Osteotomy performed?
There are various methods used to reduce the width of the nasal bones, but the most effective method is through osteotomy. This specialist surgical technique involves breaking the nasal bone on each side and then re-configuring it to the desired width. Depending on the presentation of the patient’s nose, other procedures are recommended in conjunction with osteotomy, such as hump removal and insertion of an implant to raise the bridge.
Duration: 30 min – 1 Hour
Incision: On the columella
Stitch removal: 7 to 10 days after the procedure
