On the other hand, male executives might want a large, strong, refined, hero or over-projected nose that is associated with confidence, command, domination, and authority.

Noses are very unique – the perfect nose must fit your other facial features. Some nose projections might be too small, others might be too large based on your other facial features. Over time, nose tips start to droop, just like your other features; therefore, drooping noses might be associated with old age.

Nose structures are very complicated, but that is why a board certified plastic surgeon is so valuable. He understands what should be adjusted to attain your goal. Your nasal tip projection is impacted by the following four factors:

  • Cartilage
  • Nasal Septum
  • Muscle Depressor Septi
  • Skin

Generally, the goal of many nose surgeries is to create a more balanced face – equilibrium. Over time, you also might want to elevate or lengthen your nose to counter the ill effects of old age. We will discuss how you can gain more self-confidence with plastic surgery by creating harmony between your nose, eyes, ears, and mouth.

1. Cartilage

Cartilage provides the firm structure for your nose. Its primary characteristics are shape and resistance. Your plastic surgeon can trim nasal cartridge to reduce nasal projection.

Sometimes a hump in the middle of your nose will make it appear that your tip is drooping. Naturally, people might focus on one’s imperfections. With nasal surgery, we can give you a centered projection.

Also, cartilage extension grafts can be used to lengthen your nasal tip projection. Oftentimes, lengthening will include an attempt to raise your tip. A higher nose tip might make you look more youthful, energetic and vigorous.

2. Nasal Septum

You might have been born with a deviated septum. This is when the cartilage and bone between your nostrils have a hole, puncture or perforation in it. The septum provides air flow and support for your nasal tip.

To determine whether your nose has the ideal projection, plastic surgeons might use the Goode Method. According to this method, the ratio of 0.55 is determined to be the ideal projection. If your nose ratio is higher than 0.55, then it is over-projected. If your nose ratio is lower than 0.55, then it is under-projected. We can measure your nose to determine its projection.

3. Muscle Depressor Septi

You have 3 different nasal muscles, including the muscle depressor septi. Usually, drooping noses are caused by problems with the muscle depressor septi. We can tighten this and other muscles with plastic surgery.

4. Skin

Or, your skin might start to droop due to old age. The primary factors of nose skin are elasticity and thickness. Plastic surgery can tighten your skin to improve nasal projection.
