A droop-snoot may be aerodynamically desirable on an airplane, but it’s not always aesthetically desirable on a face.
The aging process can have an effect on the nose, and as ligaments loosen, the nose may appear to droop. When the tip droops, it can make the bottom of the nose look heavy.
When addressing a droopy tip, the goal is to raise it just the right amount so that the nostrils don’t show too much. It takes meticulous planning to avoid an overdone appearance, so computer imaging works well to help you and your surgeon decide on tip position.
Rearranging or adding cartilage can rotate a droopy tip. It’s usually necessary to address the shape of the tip as well, and this is also done by adding, removing or reconfiguring cartilage. Although there are surgical principles to which your doctor will adhere, there’s no formula-it depends on your own cartilage and skin.
