Does Your Nose Make You Look Older?
Over time your nose can start drooping and can make the face appear older and more mature than it actually is. Even the people who are fortunate enough not to experience the signs of aging might notice that their nose does give them an aged appearance which can affect the whole face.
When there is a droopy tip and/or a large hump or bump on the bridge of the nose it can give an aged look. There is a belief that the nose grows along with age. According to a Chicago facial plastic surgeon Dean M. Toriumi, MD, “The nose doesn’t physically grow larger but, in fact, the tip can droop down due to poor support or project down due to tip cartilages that are too long. When this happens the upper lip can look longer and the overall look is associated with aging.”
However, you don’t have to be middle-age or even experience the first signs of aging for you to have a nose that makes you look older. When the nasal structure seems to overshadow the rest of your facial features then there is a detachment between the harmony and balance. A lot of patients tend to feel that the larger the nose they have, then the more the fine lines and wrinkles in the cheek and eye area will become.
A nose job can help to give the face a rejuvenated look because it gives repositions the nose and can also lift up the tip. When the irregularities are straightened out it gives the patient a more streamlined profile and this is achieved through cartilage grafts. This allows your plastic surgeon to be able to rebuild the nose structure and also add support to the nose tip so that it is no longer droopy for a more aesthetic. In many cases, the nose tip being lifted is all that is needed in order to give a shortening effect.
