Online Consultation Before and After

What is GNG Bulbous Nose Rhinoplasty?

  • Bulbous nose can be commonly found among Asians and its stumpy and flat appearance doesn’t give sophisticated appearance.

    GNG Bulbous Nose Correction goes through 3 step corrections to give slender nose to improve your facial impression. If required, alar cartilage trimming and alar reduction procedures will be carried out for perfect proportional nose for each individual.

Advantage of GNG Bulbous Nose Rhinoplasty

Point 1 Definite change of front facial view- 3 step solutions to fix bulbous nose!

There are many cases where the patients who went through bulbous nose rhinoplasty feel that their nose looks pinched up.
This is due to their surgeries performed without lessening subcutaneous fat.
At GNG, we conduct precise 3D CT scan and photo snap
before surgery to measure the thickness of nasal skin. We then proceed with 3 step solutions to correct nasal cartilage and thickness of skin to deliver definite change of front and even side view of face.

  • STEP1

    Remove subcutaneous fat

    Remove subcutaneous fat

    Subcutaneous fat is removed
    to create slimmer nasal skin.

  • STEP2

    Own/donated cartilage

    Project nose tip

    and additional cartilage is topped on the septum.

  • STEP3

    Fasten tip of alar cartilage

    Spread out nasal tip of alar cartilage
    is firmly fastened with septum cartilage.

Point 2 Find the perfect proportional balance and conduct additional procedures if necessary

We conduct thorough examinations prior to surgery to find perfect proportional balance for individual.
If required, additional procedures will be carried out to deliver more satisfying result.

Trim the tip of

alar cartilage

it will be
trimmed to reduce the size.

Point 3 Select the best nasal tip implant material for individual!

Prior to surgery, GNG Hospital analyzes the amount and solidity of cartilage through 3D-CT scan.
After examinations, the best material for surgery is selected and implanted on the nasal tip.
With our know-how methods, we also minimize the chance of inflammation and provide after care to lessen the scarring.

  • Septum cartilage

    It is a good material to use as support of
    nasal bridge in rhinoplasty.
    As it is extracted from the inner nose,
    no additional incision is required.

  • Ear cartilage

    It is used as material to create natural nose
    and for projection of nasal tip.
    It is easy to extract and as incision is made behind ear, scar is barely visible.

  • Rib cartilage

    A lot of cartilage can be extracted from rib
    and the chance of inflammation is slim
    which makes it versatile. Skin is sutured cleanly to minimize scarring.

GNG Thorough Physical Examination

For patients’ safety and to make an accurate surgery plan, we perform precise body examinations including: nasal endoscopy, x-rays, and 3D CT scans.

    It blocks out the air from the outside into the surgery room.

    Therefore, the contaminated germ isn’t able to come inside the surgery room. Accordingly, people can get their operations safely without any concern of viruses such as MERS, SARS and Covid-19.

    Additionally, the surgery room is equipped with a sterile air shower system at the entrance. GNG is continuously working hard to keep all instruments sterilized and making the cleanest environment for our patients!
