Rhinoplasty for a bulbous tip

Many people who are seeking rhinoplasty are interested in addressing their bulbous tip or boxy nasal tip. The open rhinoplasty approach is the best way to refine the tip and create a more triangular appearance as opposed to a rhomboid shaped tip.

The open rhinoplasty approach involves making an external incision in a hidden area between the two nostrils and elevating the skin off the cartilage that forms the tip of the nose. This provides excellent exposure of the cartilage in order to shape it to form a refined nasal tip.

Correcting a bulbous tip can be done with sutures or stitches reshaping the tip, cartilage grafts, trimming certain aspects of the cartilage, and thinning the nasal tip skin.
