What is GNG Upturned/Short Nose Rhinoplasty?
Upturned/short nose refers to the shape of the nose where the nasal tip is turned upwards or a shortened nose.
GNG Upturned/Short Nose Rhinoplasty precisely identifies the issues and creates the best possible surgical plan for the case. As all of the surgeries are performed by specialists who have vast amounts of experience and know-how’s. The doctors’ goal will be to create the most ideal nose using the ratios on the face.
Diagnosis of Upturned/Short Nose
When seen from the front, upturned noses have a wider nasolabial angle than the average nose. Therefore, the inside of the nostrils can be seen from the front, and it resembles a pig’s nose.
For short noses, the nasolabial angle is not any different than the average nose, but due to the shortness, the proportion of the nose is not right.
GNG Upturned/short nose Surgery Method
Since upturned/short nose rhinoplasty is a difficult surgery, precise analysis must be made for correct diagnosis and customized surgery plan. Through our differentiated surgery methods, we help patients discover the most ideal ratio for the perfect-fitting nose!
01|Nasal Tip Extension
When the nose is too short
Your own/donated cartilage is used to create a long support implant to extend the length of the nose and firmly fasten it.
02|Lower Alar Cartilage
When nostrils are upturned
If your nostrils are upturned, then the alar cartilage is positioned downwards to fasten and ensure that the nostrils aren’t visible from the front view.
03|Lower Nasal Tip
When the nasal tip is upturned
If the nasal tip is upturned, the septal cartilage is harvested, then inserted and fastened on the nasal tip. After that, the nasal tip can be lowered.
Advantage of GNG Upturned/Short Nose Rhinoplasty
Point 1 The ideal ratio is considered before the length of the nose is extended
The most important aspect to consider in an upturned/short nose rhinoplasty is the extent to which the nasal flesh can extend, as well as, finding the ideally shaped nose according to the facial shape and ratio. At GNG, we have the skills to extract only the minimally required amount of septal cartilage to ensure the proper functionality of the nose. This allows unrestricted extension of the nose. If the nasal flesh is not enough, a skin graft is performed to yield more satisfying results.
Nasal Tip Extension With The Most Ideal Ratio
Point 2 GNG Upturned/Short Nose Rhinoplasty has a low recurrence rate as the support cartilage is custom designed to control the thickness of the cartilage support
The most worrisome part of the Upturned/Short nose Rhinoplasty is the chance of recurrence, and to prevent this, the supporting cartilage must be firmly fastened. To assist in this, GNG offers precise examinations to analyze the problems and to custom design the supporting cartilage. This strong support ensures that there will be recurrence.
Point 3 Minimize side effects as artificial implants aren’t used
Artificial implants such as L shaped silicone aren’t used for upturned/short nose rhinoplasty at GNG.
To extend the length of the nose, GNG uses own/donated cartilage which is stronger and minimizes the side effects (such as inflammation).
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.

What is a positive pressure surgery room?
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!
Don’t worry! It’s a germ-free zone, GNG’s surgery room!
