Nose Job [ Rhinoplasty ]

A Bulbous Tip

According to St. Augustine, FL, facial plastic surgeon Deirdre Leake, MD, “Tip rhinoplasty is among the most technically difficult surgery we perform. After changing the framework of the nose, the skin may or may not take the new shape, making it hard to anticipate the final result.”

Having a bulbous tip means it looks like your nose has a ball on the end. This can be due to the shape of the underlying structure, or just thick skin, but regardless of the cause, this nose type looks bottom heavy and draws attention away from the eyes.

To refine the tip of the nose, the cartilage is narrowed. Rhinoplasty relies less on removing cartilage and more on strengthening existing cartilage or adding additional cartilage for support in order to improve definition.
