Question : My father is Iranian. I’ve inherited his nose. I have a large hump, and the tip hangs down very low. I imagine that removing the hump will make the tip hang even lower, so how would this be addressed?
Answer : Rhinoplasty in patients of many different ethnicities is very complex. It is very important to make sure your surgeon understands the differences of the noses to obtain the best result. There are various techniques available to position the tip in the appropriate position and to remove the hump so that the final result is a stable result that looks very good. There are different grafting techniques and techniques using sutures to position the nose very precisely. In modern rhinoplasty now, the techniques have evolved to the level where very good and predictable results are possible.
