I have a low nasal bridge, how do you fix it?

I have a low nasal bridge. I’m Asian. Would this require breaking the nose to fix it?
Not necessarily. A low nasal bridge can be augmented with a variety of techniques. One technique is non-surgical and involves injectable filler, such as hyaluronic acid (Juvederm) or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse). A longer lasting procedure is surgical (rhinoplasty) and involves placement of cartilage and/or fascia to augment the dorsum. That cartilage is obtained from either the ear, the septum or the rib. The fascia that is obtained is temporalis fascia. For before and after photos of Dr. Batniji’s Newport Beach rhinoplasty procedure, click here.
