How is a droopy nose fixed during rhinoplasty?
A droopy nose can be fixed during rhinoplasty in a variety of ways. The way in which the droopy nose is addressed will depend on the appearance of the nose, the size of the nose, and the thickness of the nasal skin. The most common technique to help correct a droopy nose during rhinoplasty is probably the use of a cartilagenous graft harvested from your nasal septum that is placed as a columella strut. The columella strut is quite common in rhinoplasty. The strut adds support to the nasal tip in both droopy and non-droopy noses.
