Hooked Nose Overview, Causes, Treatment
The nose plays a big role in the appearance of the entire face. It is no surprise that many people who are unhappy with the appearance of the nose are interested in exploring all available treatment options. Some noses are crooked or asymmetrical, either from birth or due to a traumatic injury, or positioned off-center. Many patients come to us to resolve a visible bump on the bridge of their nose that detracts from their overall appearance, particularly the profile view. Nasal tips can be droopy or enlarged, or nostrils may be large, deformed, or unsightly, leading to significant embarrassment. Or perhaps it is difficult for you to identify exactly what you don’t like about your nose – you just know that you don’t like the way it looks, and you want to explore your options.
Some people also investigate various cosmetic nose surgeries for medical reasons such as deformed or oddly-shaped noses that impair breathing, or exacerbating allergies, asthma, sleep disorders, or other medical conditions.
Hooked noses are found among people from almost all corners of the world but it is more associated with certain ethnic groups from the Middle East, North Africa, Southern Europe and the South of Asia.
Hooked nose, also known as Aquiline or Jewish nose, is where the nasal-bridge is very prominent, giving it the outlook of being slightly bent or curved. The word “aquiline” originates from the Latin word “aquilinus” and it means “eagle-like”.
