Rhinoplasty Operations at Our Respected Clinic in Singapore
The Asian nose usually ends off with a round tip, and its sides are plump, rather than angular. Apart from the aesthetic concerns, some people may also experience functional issues such as nasal congestion, sinusitis or breathing difficulties. Both the aesthetic facets and functionality aspects can be improved with rhinoplasty, which is also commonly referred to as a nose job.
Correcting an undefined nose involves raising the bridge with a prosthesis made of silicon, creating a defined and well projected tip with cartilage taken from either the nasal septum or the ear, and reducing the width of the nose for a slimmer frontal profile.
For nose tip surgery, nasal cartilage of a precise shape is harvested and used as a support fixture for the columella. Additional cartilage harvested from the ear is used to enhance the height, projection and definition of the tip. This method allows the surgeon to customise the tip of the nose to achieve good proportion and height for more natural results. While some clinics offer rhinoplasty with the use of L-shaped implants, Dream believes in using natural cartilage to customise your rhinoplasty results. During your consultation, we can include a virtual simulation to explore the types of surgical outcomes you can get from this procedure.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Method
- We use silicone implants to enhance the nose bridge
- Nasal septum cartilage is preferred for the support of the columella nasi. Inserting this support fixture is crucial to raising the height of the nose tip in a natural-looking way
- Ear cartilage is harvested and used for reshaping, and also for providing additional height
- The advantage of this method of rhinoplasty is that it gives the ability to manoeuvre the nose tip like how one could with a natural nose, which is not be possible with an L-shaped implant.
OTHER RHINOPLASTY METHODS
Augmentation with L-shaped Implant
The use of L-shaped silicone implants are one of the most common ways to augment the nose. Depending on a patient’s expectations and nose structure, the surgeon will choose an implant size that fits proportionally. In the case of a nose job using L-shaped implant, it will be a one-step procedure to enhance the bridge and tip.Augmentation with Bone Graft and Cartilage*
This is ideal for patients who does not want any foreign materials at all, or for those whose body rejects implants. The bone graft is used to raise the bridge and cartilage is used to enhance the tip.
