I want to correct my nose, which droops when I smile. My doctor does not want to cut my depressor septi, he wants to attach cartilage or something else to the septum. My sister had the muscle cut eight years ago and she had good results. Which way do you believe is better?


I would suggest you try a small Botox injection into the muscle before surgery, which can give you the “fix” you are looking for. For a more permanent alternative I would recommend rhinoplasty, because muscles just heal if you cut them. The results of a cartilage graft really depend on your individual nasal tip. Skin type, shape of your nasal cartilages, and septal deviation factors can all play a role. I would advise to try Botox first and to schedule a consultation with an expert.
