 Taken together, these features make the nose large and wide, and aesthetic features such as the parallel lines of the back of the nose, the beauty lines of the blades of the nose, and the narrow and distinctive shape of the nose are not evident.

In many of these people, the width of bony base of the nose is more than normal.

Of course everyone with a wide nose tip is not in the group of the fleshy type.

In some people, the wide tip of the nose is due to the wide and strong cartilage and these people have soft skin unlike fleshy noses and therefore the result of nose cosmetic surgery is better for them.

Nasal Cosmetic Surgery Methods:

In fleshy noses, the main goal is to narrow the lower half of the nose as far as possible and to form the tip and blades of the nose

To accomplish this, the nasal cartilage structure is strengthened by applying the same person’s nasal middle cartilage to create a narrower nose by applying pressure on its thick, oily skin.

In these types of noses, taking much part of the cartilage and bone of the nose is prevented as possible and they will be removed  only if there is a hump in the nose.

Softening the thick skin for these people  shall be done in special cases and moderately  due to  irreversible complications and lasting skin damage.

Cares after nose surgery:

Using plaster after surgery for a month or two can prevent the formation of repaired skin beneath thicker skin and give a better long-term result.

In some patients, a corticosteroid ampoule is injected subcutaneously in the upper part of the nasal tip to reduce the thickness of the nasal skin.

The injection shall be done by the surgeon and repetition of the injection may be needed.

However, because of the possibility of over-thinning of the skin following subcutaneous corticosteroid injection, the infusion of the solution should be diluted and minimally performed by a skilled nasal surgeon.

Proper surgical procedures and adequate strengthening of the nasal cartilage skeleton can in many cases lead to a significant improvement in the appearance of bony and fleshy noses.

Nose narrowing from the opposite side, removing nose hump, resolving nasal tip drop, and nasal tip formation and narrowing can be achieved in many cases.

Of course, it should be emphasized that narrowing and beauty of the fleshy nose shall be the same as bony noses and the owners of these noses should not expect a small fantasy nose.

Is the fleshy nose surgery reversible and is it more difficult to have surgery on fleshy noses?

Certainly, if the nose is under surgery correctly and by the best surgeon of the fleshy nose, it will never return to its original form, and improvement of its appearance will be permanent.

Due to the high thickness of the skin, swelling of these noses are more after surgery and it takes longer and they have to wait 1.5 to 2 years for the final result.
