A drooping nose or nasal tip ptosis is a condition affecting the appearance of the nose as well as the function with possible airway obstruction. Ptosis is a medical term simply referring to a droopiness of a body part, in this case the nose. The nose is a prominent facial feature and when the tip droops it can have a dramatic influence on the overall appearance of the face.
The causes of a drooping nose are numerous and treatment can be surgical or non-surgical depending on the extent of the condition.
