Do I Need Tip Rhinoplasty?

I'm 30 years old, and overall perceive myself to have good skin tone. The only facial procedure I've had done is Botox to glabella, but have a crows feet appointment coming up. Services I'm interested in include laser skin tightening to maintain collagen, Latisse, volumizers, and tip rhinoplasty. What would you recommend?

Do I need a tip Plasty

Your nasal tip itself is quite small with an aesthetically pleasing shape, so offhand I would say no to a Tip Plasty.  Your nostrils are flared and horizontally oriented which give the illusion of a broad nasal tip.  I'd have to see better quality pictures to make a more detailed review.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty can be effective for small tip changes

+1

It is difficult to evaluate your nose with the photos shown but in one view there appears to be some shadowing above the nasal tip, possibly a contouring issue.  A small defect like this may be effectively treated with non-surgical rhinoplasty, using fillers to contour the nose.  The procedure is quick and is great at small, defined changes.

Good luck in your search for information!
