Nose SurgeryBULBOUS TIP (TIP PLASTY)

bulbous nose tip

A Bulbous Tip is caused when the skin of the nasal tip is too thick or has excess soft tissue and/or the septal cartilage is too thick or big. When this type of nose is corrected, a sharper and slimmer-looking nose is created.

Tip Plasty can Benefit

  1. 1. People with a round and blunt nose tip
  2. 2. People with a thick and wide nose tip

How is Tip Plasty Performed?

For a wide and bulbous tip, it is necessary to remove the excess cartilage and/or reshape the nasal tip using septal, ear, or rib cartilage. When the shape of the tip becomes narrower, it will result in a significant improvement in appearance and give a more defined image. It is important to maintain nasal symmetry during the correction and it is often recommended in conjunction with dorsal augmentation to yield a more dramatic improvement.
