Can I slim down my nose and reduce the size of the tip by using topical treatments?
Any Topical Treatment to Enhance Nose Shape?
Doctor Answers (2)
Most seek balance and symmetry of the nose
Although patients frequently request a "smaller nose" they really desire more balance and symmetry to the nose. Topical therapy is unlikely to achieve this. This is best obtained with a consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to determine the best method to achieve your goals.
Topical treatments will not change your nose's appearance.
If you want tip-reduction, surgery is the only solution.
You could possibly camouflage the appearance of your profile-bump by injecting filler above and below the fullness. But if you're looking for a smaller, slimmer, more refined nasal appearance, you'll likely require a rhinoplasty.
