Flat Nose Augmentation: Styles and Considerations

A flat nose bridge, a flat nose, and a small amount of nose tissue are considered to be another very common nose shape problem, especially for Asians who have a relatively small and short nose structure.

No matter which angle you look at it from, it doesn’t look as beautiful as you want it to be. The longer it takes, the more it seems to erode your confidence.

Flat nose, small amount of nose tissue, what are the characteristics?

Let’s start with a preliminary check of the shape of your nose to see what kind of nose you have. Is it a flat nose and a small amount of nose tissue?

  • Flat nose : A flat nose is easily noticeable by its lack of definition. The bridge of the nose will be flat and low, causing the face to lack dimension. When looking straight at the face, it appears wide and large because it lacks the height dimension at the bridge of the nose. This flatness is further emphasized from the side view, where the slope of the bridge is clearly seen not matching the forehead and chin, making the face look down all the time.
  • Small amount of nose tissue : You can easily check the amount of nose tissue yourself by pinching the skin at the bridge of your nose. The amount of tissue you can pull up will indicate how much tissue you have available for augmentation. If you can pull up a lot of tissue, you have a good amount of tissue and can have nose augmentation surgery to create a more beautiful nose shape. However, if you can only pinch a very small amount of tissue or almost none at all, it means that you have very little nose tissue. In this case, nose surgery will require careful design and planning to choose a nose shape that is both appropriate and feasible, along with selecting the right nose augmentation technique.

The problem of a flat nose, and a small amount of nose tissue

The problem of a flat nose, and a small amount of nose tissue can be caused by the following factors:

  • Flat nose and small amount of nose tissue: This is a common problem found in Asians who have a relatively small and short nose structure. The bridge of the nose is flat, and the bridge is not very high.
  • Flat nose and small amount of nose tissue after facial or nasal accidents: In some cases, a nasal bridge may break or fracture, or there may be a wound on the nose that requires some tissue to be removed. This can lead to a reduction in the amount of nose tissue.
  • Small amount of nose tissue after injection of unsafe fillers into the nose: For example, liquid silicone or paraffin. These dangerous substances, when present under the skin for a long time, can cause inflammation and infection of the nasal tissue. The tissue dies and requires surgical treatment to remove the liquids from the nose. This is another cause of a small amount of nose tissue.

Flat Nose, Can I Get a Nose Job? Which Style Is The Best?

People with a flat nose and a small amount of nose tissue can undergo nose augmentation surgery. However, there are limitations on how high and pointed the nose can be. If the nose is augmented too high, it will look unnatural and there is a risk of it piercing through the skin.

The appropriate surgical technique is to slightly increase the slope of the bridge, not too high. At the same time, the size of the nose tip is reduced to make it look smaller and narrower. This will help the nose look longer and higher overall. The tip is slightly pointed and looks natural, not forced into the shape of the nose tip.


  • Korean Nose Style : Is another very popular style, especially among Asians and Thais. The Korean nose emphasizes adding a slope to the bridge of the nose to match the area between the eyes. The tip of the nose may be slightly raised to create a well-defined, upturned nose that does not droop down.

  • Medium Slope Tip : This nose shape is created by adjusting the slope of the bridge and tip of the nose to make it look naturally tall and beautiful. It is a good solution for people with a flat nose or a low bridge. The tip of the nose is raised to a moderate level, not too high, to prevent problems such as tightness, thinness, and perforation.

Techniques for Augmenting a Flat Nose with Little Tissue

Once the desired nose shape has been determined, the next important step is to choose a rhinoplasty technique that is appropriate for the patient’s nasal structure. Surgery to correct a flat nose with little tissue requires the expertise and experience of a rhinoplasty doctor. The must must choose a method that will augment the nose to make it look longer, slimmer, and higher, while also reducing the risk of silicone tilt, thin nose tip, and nasal perforation.

The open rhinoplasty technique is suitable for cases with a flat nose, a low nose, and little tissue because it allows the surgeon to clearly see the internal structure of the nose. This allows for more precise adjustment of the nasal structure, reducing the chances of nasal perforation and making the results after surgery more beautiful and realistic. The surgeon will use various techniques, as follows:

  • Use of Tip Graft Materials : Other materials besides silicone are used to reinforce the tip of the nose, making it stronger and helping to shape the tip of the nose to be beautiful, natural, and not tight. This can be done using cartilage from ear, rib cartilage, nasal septum cartilage, gluteal tissue, earlobe tissue, or artificial tissue to support the tip of the nose.
  • Nasal Septum Extension Technique : The doctor will use cartilage or the inner nasal septum of the patient to sew and reinforce the nasal septum to make the tip of the nose look longer and higher without causing nasal perforation in the future.
  • Interdome Suturing Technique : The doctor will sew the cartilage at the tip of the nose together to adjust the shape of the nose that is wide at the tip to make it look smaller and narrower. This makes the tip of the nose look slimmer.
