Nasal Tip “bulb” Surgey
The tip of my nose looks like it has a bulb on it and I think I would look better if it were made a bit smaller. Is fixing this nose problem called rhinoplasty? Can my nose be fixed from inside the nose?
Yes, fixing your nose is considered a rhinoplasty. You may have wide/broad nasal tip cartilages that cause the “bulb” appearance to the tip of your nose. As well, you may also have thick nasal skin that further accentuates the “bulb” appearance. I use a variety of techniques to refine the appearance of the nasal tip, including stitches to sculpt your own cartilage. I perform rhinoplasty via an endonasal or closed approach and an external or open approach, depending upon your anatomy and what maneuvers need to be performed to obtain the aesthetic result that you hope to achieve.
