Q: I’m an Asian male and I kind of already know how to make my nose bridge wider based on my research, which is the spreader graft. My nose is similar to the African American woman’s whereby bridge is thin and dented at the side of the nose (with arrow pointing). My question is, how do you “fill” the dent so my nose bridge wont appear so skinny? My ideal nose is triangular shape and mine is looks like an inverted T.
A: Using grafts to support the external nasal valve – such as lateral crural strut grafts or alar batten grafts, may be used to widen this “pinched” area and to provide a more gradual transition from the bridge to the tip.
