An upturned nose, also called a miss piggy nose, is shorter than the average nose and has a snout-like appearance; focus is drawn to the nostrils, because a larger amount of nostril region is exposed. Rhinoplasty is a viable option for remedying this facial issue.
In order to correct an upturned nose malformation, surgeons use various types of nasal grafts (organic implants of bone and cartilage). These grafts add strength to the area and alter the internal nasal architecture. These changes are reflected externally. After the grafts are surgically added, the patient must go through a brief recovery period. Once the swelling recedes, the patient will be able to fully enjoy the new nose.
