Many rhinoplasty patients desire more refinement to the tip of the nose. A bulbous tip, especially in a woman, can lead to attention drawn to the nose and not to desired features such as the eyes and lips.
A bulbous tip nose can be due to excessive cartilage, increased spring to the cartilage, or misshaped cartilage. Rhinoplasty can shape the bulbous tip to create a more refined tip by shaping/carving the cartilage. Bending it using suture or stitch techniques or even placing grafts to completely reshape the tip. When it comes to rhinoplasty, there are many ways to make changes to the appearance of the nasal tip.
