Noses come in different shapes and sizes. The shape of a nose is determined by its nasal bones and nasal cartilages, which include the septal cartilage (separates the nostrils) and the upper and lower lateral cartilages. The nose is responsible for breathing, smelling, and for warming and conditioning inhaled air.
There are at least 12 different nose shapes, yet each person has a nose unique to themselves. As we age, the nose shape may change. The tip may descend while support is lost at the base, leading to a wider, flatter nose. Dermal fillers and neuoromodulators can be utilized to lift a tip, smooth out a bump, lengthen, straighten or even make a nose appear smaller or shorter. It has never been easier to subtly change the shape of your nose without surgery or downtime!
