Abstract

An aesthetically short nose is defined as a developmental deformity in which the nose appears foreshortened. It is characterized by a decreased distance from the nasofrontal angle (NFA) to the tip-defining points (TDP) and an increased nasolabial angle with increased nostril show. A method is described and illustrated for lengthening the aesthetically short nose by rotating the nasal tip in an inferior direction. This rotation results in an actual lengthening, as well as an illusion of lengthening of the nose.
