Address the “Hang-Down” Look in the New York Area
A nose that is often defined as a drooping noseat New York’s Williams Center is one where the tip of the nose hangs down. In some circumstances, it’s just a drooping tip, but in other circumstances, it’s complicated by a large profile or a bump on the nose, making the tip look considerably worse. For someone considering surgery for this anatomical variant, it is important to seek a consultation from a highly trained and experienced rhinoplasty specialist.

Patients can start by obtaining a consultation and communicating their goals to the doctor. Many specialists do a great deal of listening first to understand what the patient’s goals and desires are during the consultation process. For example, some drooping nose patients only have cosmetic concerns to be addressed, whereby many patients with a drooping nose also have some sort of breathing difficulty on one side or another. Another important part of the consultation should include computerized imaging that allows the surgeon can alter the images, which functions as a wonderful communication tool between the doctor and the patient in the process of agreeing upon a desired goal or outcome.

Reputable surgeons will not guarantee outcomes and are very careful not to show the drooping nose patient an image that they do not feel is achievable.
Fixing a drooping nose often consists of a couple of things. Many times, the tip of the nose needs to be rotated or brought upward slightly, as well as adding or rebuilding support to the tip of the nose so that it does not simply drop or fall again. With a drooping nose patient where there is a large contributing component that is a result of a prominent bump or dorsum, this should be addressed at the same time so that the patient is left with a very balanced approach, which can also make the nose fit the face better and look more natural*. The average patient who has a drooping tip will typically need to a stronger tip built, and this is done by harvesting cartilage from the nose. Think of it as recycling, as an experienced surgeon can take cartilage from areas in the nose where the cartilage is unnecessary and reorient them to another area to rebuild or regain support.
