This lovely 39-year-old woman suffered from a tension nose and wanted to make refinements to her nasal appearance. A tension nose is when there is excessive bone or cartilage that causes the tip to be over projected and the nostrils on a stretch. These stretched thin nostril openings restrict airflow and cause nasal obstruction. Dr. Brace performed a deprojection and refinement of her tip and nasal bridge to create a functional and softer nasal appearance. She is seen 1 year post-op with a beautiful and functional nose that can breathe!
