Narrow Nose

The problem of having a too narrow nose is less commonly encountered than that of a too wide nose, but nonetheless is something that can be treated with rhinoplasty techniques. A narrow nose can be due to a narrow-appearing bridge or a narrow tip. Learn more about how to improve a narrow or pinched tip here.

Often a narrow bridge is related to having a dorsal hump that once taken down creates a normally appearing bridge width. In other cases where a narrow bridge is due to the true collapsed position of the nasal bones or upper lateral cartilages (internal nasal valve), spreader grafts can be placed to widen this area.
