Best Nose Job San Diego for Drooping Columella | Hanging Columella Rhinoplasty Specialist

One of the most common requests from San Diego rhinoplasty patients is to achieve a natural and elegant nasal tip. Many patients complain that their noses appear droopy from the front view and elongated from the profile view. Many patients also complain about excess nostril exposure from the profile view that draws unwanted attention to the nose.

Reshaping a hanging columella (overly prominent strip of skin between the nostrils that appears to hang from the tip of the nose) is an excellent strategy that can be used to correct a droopy tip. During surgery, Dr. Kolstad will use advanced rhinoplasty techniques to reshape the excess columella cartilage and correct the nostril droop to achieve a tighter, more refined nasal tip. Correcting columellar ptosis at the time of rhinoplasty can dramatically improve the appearance of the nose. By making the columella less prominent and visible, it enhances the nasal tip shape and brings the nose into balance with the other facial features.

Correcting a drooping columella in a natural and artistic way requires complex surgical techniques and is best performed by a highly experienced specialist. Dr. Kolstad spent an entire year in New York learning his techniques from one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the world. Dr. Kolstad is well-known as one of the top rhinoplasty surgeons in San Diego. He specializes in customizing each rhinoplasty so the patient’s nose will expertly match their unique facial features and ethnic backgrounds.
