How does a wide nasal bridge affect a nose job?
What’s the best way to correct a wide nasal bridge? Does this usually require the nasal bone to be broken?
This depends. If the nasal bones are short, the nasal bony pyramid wide, and the dorsum is relatively shallow or weak, then augmentation of the dorsum will address the shallow/weak dorsum on profile and give the illusion of a more narrow nasal bridge on frontal view. However, if the nasal bones are of relatively normal length and the dorsum does not require rhinoplasty, then the wide nasal bridge is addressed by osteotomies to re-position the nasal bones.
