Many of our patients come in specifically for nasal tip reshaping. This aspect of rhinoplasty surgery is focused on the tip of the nose.
When nasal tip reshaping is the goal during your rhinoplasty procedure, your surgeon will most likely be implementing the open rhinoplasty technique. This incision technique is perfect for affording your surgeon access to the nasal tip cartilage. Once access has been created, it will be easier to see the exact nature of the issues. The nasal tip cartilage will then typically be carefully altered to resculpt the tip of the nose.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, is a procedure that can involve a number of varied techniques. Each of these techniques is chosen for use in surgery to solve a specific issue regarding the nose. In many cases, tip-only rhinoplasty is needed. This option can solve many nasal tip problems.
Tip-only rhinoplasty often features the shrinking and reshaping of a large nasal tip, making it more proportional to the rest of the nose. It may involve the shortening of a prominent projecting nasal tip. Finally, it may be a process of straightening and raising a sagging nasal tip.
