Under Projected Nose

An under-projected nasal tip is a nose where the tip sits too closely to the face resulting in a flattened appearance.

An under-projected tip can be a result from an injury or prior surgery that destabilises the tip support or it can be just a natural occurrence. Unfortunately rhinoplasty surgery in which inadequate tip support was created is a common cause.

Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed to fix the under-projected nose. The surgery normally involves cartilage grafting to provide the necessary support to maintain the improved tip position. The grafts are usually taken from the nasal septum or ribs.
