Default Convex cartiliges?

What does it mean to have convex cartiliges? That was was of the comments I got from a doctor I emailed.

It means that the cartilage in your nose bulges and/or curves outwards, which is not considered desirable in the nasal area.

Thank you. That makes a lot of sense and I agree, my tip is undesirable.

The doc could've been referring to your dorum, philtrum, or septum. This was done through e-mail? Not the most accurate means of assessment. Be careful!

It could mean a few things. Does it look anything like this



or is it a bulbous tip on the sides?

I believe a supra tip break deformity might also be called convex cartilage, vertical.

Default Attn: Mr. Z

I am thankful that I have a straight bridge but I have a bulbous tip for sure. Do you notice how very different my nostrils look from the front?

You are right. Your nostrils look very different from the front. Definitely a tip issue.
