What is arrow/long nose rhinoplasty?
Arrow/long nose refers to the droopy nose tip that covers the philtrum. The cause of this is due to the position of the alar cartilage and overdeveloped septum. To correct this, the droopy tip must be projected.
GNG arrow/long nose rhinoplasty repositions the cartilage and corrects septum deviation to reduce the length of the nose and creating a softer facial impression.
Diagnosis of arrow/long nose
When observed from the side, arrow/long nose shows smaller nasolabial angle and makes your nose look longer especially when you laugh. From the front facial angle, the nose tip
covers philtrum due to droopiness.

Usage of the HEPA filter ventilation system in all operation rooms.
What is a HEPA filter ventilated operation room?
The air outside the operating room is filtered cleanly by the HEPA filter and circulated inside.
Because air is circulated by providing clean air through a positive pressure system, you don’t need to worry about infection caused by air pollution thus having surgery with confidence.
Also, there is an air-shower system that shakes off contaminated dust before entering the operating room. We strive to do our best in preventing infection through sterilization and thorough infection control of all medical devices.
Be rest assured! GNG’s operation rooms are meticulously clean.
