Droopy Nose Q&A w/Dr. Becker

WIN A FREE TREATMENT! JOIN OUR VIP LIST HERE >>

“Droopy nose” (aka nasal tip ptosis) occurs when the tip of the nose hooks downward or is elongated, rather than pointing forward and elevated. Dr. Adam Becker, award-winning facial plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty expert in Raleigh, NC, often treats patients with droopy nose to correct a droopy nasal tip and yield a beautiful, balanced nasal profile. Dr. Becker is here to answer the most commonly asked questions about a droopy nose.

Q: Why does the nose start to droop with age? Is it just the tip or the entire nose?

A: The nasal tip can often begin to droop starting around 30-40 years of age. This happens because the cartilages that form the tip of the nose are held in place by ligamentous structures. These ligaments, as well as the soft tissue components, begin to relax and this can cause the tip to begin to rotate downward.

Q: Is a droopy nose more common in men? Women? Both?

A: There is very little literature regarding gender differences in age related tip drooping. One group of researchers did not see a difference between men and women.

Q: Will a previous rhinoplasty do anything to limit the amount of drooping?

A: Possibly. Not all rhinoplasty surgeons use the same techniques, but when the surgeon uses techniques that strengthen the tip support, then there is potential to resist age related drooping.

Q: What do you suggest for those people who are genetically inclined to experience drooping? Is there anything they can do from a proactive viewpoint to limit the drooping?

A: Outside of living a healthy lifestyle, there are no known strategies to limit tip drooping. It’s just part of the aging process.

Q: What are some of the reasons for the droopiness?

A: Aside from age related tip drooping, some other causes of a droopy nasal tip include trauma, which can damage the supporting ligaments or the cartilages of the nasal tip. Some individuals also have a droopy nasal tip due to their inherent nasal shape.

Q: What are the best solutions for lifting a droopy tip? What if someone doesn’t want to go through with surgery?

A: Surgery is most often the only solution for a droopy nasal tip. In certain patients, dermal fillers can be used to give the appearance of a more elevated tip. This should be done by an experienced injector as filler injections into the nose carry some risk of damage to the skin due to the unique anatomy of the nose compared to other areas of the face.

If you’re concerned with a droopy nose and want to learn more about your options to improve your nasal profile, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Becker and he will provide you with a full assessment and recommended treatment plan for you.

Neck Lift Vs Facelift – What’s the Difference?

WIN A FREE TREATMENT! JOIN OUR VIP LIST HERE >>

Neck Lift Raleigh, NCSagging skin on the face and neck is a common concern for many of us as we age. Skin loses its elasticity, and over time, facial drooping, jowling, double chin, and/or “turkey wattle” may occur. Factors such as gravity, sun exposure, genetics, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle all play a role in the advancement of these problems, and a facelift or neck lift may be considered to restore a youthful appearance. Dr. Adam Becker specializes in the aging face and often takes years off the aging process for his patients with his specialized facelift or neck lift in Raleigh, NC.

All You Need To Know About Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

WIN A FREE TREATMENT! JOIN OUR VIP LIST HERE >>

Do you feel like you always look tired, but you’re not? As people age, the eyelids are one of the first places to show it. If you’re in the Raleigh, NC area Dr. Adam Becker’s eyelid surgery can freshen up your eyes and make your appearance look more youthful, alert, and happy!

Eyelid Surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that is performed on the upper, lower (or both) sections of the eyelids and can help improve the appearance of the eyelids on the aging face.  As part of the natural aging process, the skin of the eyelids stretches and the muscles supporting them weaken over time, resulting in wrinkles and bulges.
