An overprojecting nose is a common reason people come to our Newport Beach office seeking out Rhinoplasty. Typically, their complaint is that their nose sticks out too far from their face or their nose is too big for their face.
Occasionally, the development of an overly projecting nose can occur from a previous rhinoplasty. One common sequela of trying to define the nasal tip is a change on the nasal tip projection or on the tip angle. Correcting the overly projecting nose often requires the remaining anterior septal angle to be reduced or the remaining lower lateral cartilages to be reduced.
The open rhinoplasty allows great control of both the nasal tip with regard to the tip projection and tip rotation.
