What is DA’s Long/Arrow Nose Surgery?


Correcting surgery for downturned nose that covers the philtrum when smiling and nose that looks like an arrow

It requires cutting the muscle that lowers the nose tip when smiling and rotating the nose wing cartilage that is downturned to correct the downturned nasal tip.

Surgical Method for DA’s Long/Arrow Nose Surgery

  • TYPE. 01 Alar rim surgery Fix the columella to the cartilage of nasal septum to prevent reoccurrence and reposition alar rims to point upwards.
  • TYPE. 02 Septum surgery Cut off part of the lower cartilage of the nasal septum or cut off the muscles that pull the nasal tip downwards.

DA Nose Surgery selects the best implant to perform safe and effective surgery

  • 01 Ear Cartilage Ear cartilage is the best implant that can be easily collected and gives natural nasal tip shape. To prevent ear shape deformation, collecting the cartilage from the inside of the ear will result in minimal scarring that cannot be seen from the outside.
  • 02 Nasal septum The nasal septum is the wall between the nostrils that separates the two nasal passages and supports the nose and is a good implant to use during nose length extension. Nasal septum can be collected from the nostrils so additional incision isn’t necessary.
  • 03 Rib Cartilage Less chance of infection and can collect large amounts, so its useful for nasal tip and nasal bridge correction. Used in cases of enlarging the nose more than 7mm, need revision between the two nasal passage, and in revision surgery.
  • 04 Alloderm It’s called artificial skin as it removed chemical substances that may cause immune rejection and is prone to infection and create smooth skin. It can protect the skin and used on nasal tips to make the skin thicker and smoother.
