Noses come in all different shapes and sizes. The shape of a nose is determined by its nasal bones and its nasal cartilages which also includes the septal cartilage (separates the nostrils) and the upper and the lower lateral cartilages. The nose actually has several functions, from being responsible for the sense of smell, to conditions and warm inhaled air and making it more humid.
There are at least 12 different shapes of noses and yet each person has a nose unique to themselves. As we age, the nose shape changes. The tip descends and we lose support at the base, leading to a wider, flatter nose. Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers can be utilized to lift a tip, smooth out a bump, lengthen, straighten or even make a nose appear shorter! It has never been easier to subtly change the shape of your nose!
