Pinched Nose

When the cartilage in the nasal tip is weak, it can collapse and result in a pinched nose. Not only does a pinched nose look abnormal, but it can result in nasal obstruction. The most common cause of a pinched nose is a previous rhinoplasty procedure, but it can also be caused by genetics or injury. At Dr. Sedgh Facial Plastic Surgery, we perform pinched nose correction surgery at our facility in West Hollywood, CA.

Nasal tip deformities are one of the most common complications from rhinoplasty. When too much cartilage is removed from the nasal tip when reshaping the nose, the structure can become thin and weak. Over time, the cartilage can collapse inward, creating a pinched appearance. Patients with a pinched nose may have difficulty breathing through their nose, which can impact their health.

Revision rhinoplasty to fix a pinched nose complication can restore a balanced appearance to the nose and improve breathing function. During the procedure, cartilage grafting is needed to add support to the nasal tip. The nasal passages can be opened, and the nasal tip reshaped to create the desired form and function.

Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty

Dr. Jacob Sedgh is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing complex rhinoplasty procedures. His expertise in cartilage grafting and cosmetic nose shaping are used when performing a pinched nose rhinoplasty. Restoring function is a top priority, but aesthetics is also important. The goal in every rhinoplasty procedure is to ensure that the nose is functional while appearing natural and balanced with the other facial features.

Whether you were born with weak nasal cartilage, or a previous nose job resulted in a pinched nasal tip, nose reshaping can achieve the nose shape and function you desire. Expanding the nostrils and reshaping the nasal tip can make a significant difference in your nose appearance.
