Thank you for your question. It is possible to perform a tip rhinoplasty if the width and bridge of the nose are normal. This procedure is a regular rhinoplasty. Consider looking at the cost section of the real self website for rhinoplasty costs in your area. Best wishes.
There is no question that a tip rhinoplasty can be done by itself. But this can only be determined after a hands-on examination. It sounds like you may be a good candidate. Seek out an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon .
Dear peach, thank you for your question.Rhinoplasty is a popular procedure that can
dramatically change one's appearance. In
our San Diego practice we perform computer imaging to determine what may be
possible in your case. Actual before and after photos are a good way to
evaluate your surgeon.Good Luck!
It is possible to have tip work only, but a full assessment of the nose would need to be performed to ensure you obtain the best possible result. I would recommend a consult with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist. He/she will evaluate your nose and determine what you may benefit from. Computer imaging software may be used to morph a photo of you. This will give you an idea of what to expect from the final result. Cost can vary depending on the complexity of the surgery and your geographic location. I hope this information helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
The areas you are concerned about are
frequently improved with a tip rhinoplasty alone without altering the bridge. Whether you should have the procedure
is a personal decision only you can make after a full consultation. Additional information about the
procedure will help you decide if it is a procedure that you want to pursue or whether you would get a better result with a full rhinoplasty.
Following the advice from a surgeon on
this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on
limited 2 dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the
tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and
discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your
best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon with extensive nasal
surgery experience who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
(ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon that you trust and are comfortable with.
You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

What you are requesting is accomplished by a tip rhinoplasty. This is a fairly common operation worthy nasal bridge and with of the nose are satisfactory.
It is not uncommon to have a tip rhinoplasty performed without having surgery on the bridge of the nose. If your nasal dorsum is straight and the nasal bones are not too wide, then a rhinoplasty can be done which only addresses the tip/cartilages/nostrils. Be certain to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in rhinoplasty surgery. Best wishes Dr Lepore.
Rhinoplasty or tip plasty with alar excisions? This is a common question and i need to see photos to give a proper answer. Often when this is done the rest of the nose will look wider.
Rhinoplasty is really all about balance. If your tip and alar base need to be reduced but your bridge is already narrow, there may not be a reason to alter the bridge at all.

All rhinoplasty procedures should be individualized. The surgery can be limited to just the tip as long as you end up with a result where all portions of the nose are proportional. Cost will vary depending on exactly what is done, but the procedure you talk about will be less than a full rhinoplasty.
