Is there any fat in the nose?

Is there any fat in the nose?

Postby sonali » Mon Oct 19, 2009 4:18 pm

Hi Dr.Nassif. I was wondering if there is any fatty tissue in the nose? That is, if a person gains weight, does the nose become a bit bulbous too? From what I know from googling, there are no fat cells in the nose. But wanted to confirm with you!

yes i think there is a fat layer under the skin of the nose
i noticed that after my rhino .. my nose became thin .. like it lost weight :mrgreen:
and this fat layer is one of the things that may be removed form the nose during a rhinoplasty

There is minimal fatty tissue in the nose. If you gain weight, it will not be apparent in the nose. However, if you have thick skin, the nose tip may always appear thicker. Thank you for the inquiry.
