Considering Rhinoplasty? (photo)

It is possible to subtly refine the nasal tip with rhinoplasty surgery. In general, the cost of a primary rhinoplasty can range from $10,000 - $15,000 depending on the individual circumstances of the patient. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Tip rhinoplasty is a straightforward procedure. When you find a surgeon in your area, you can see if other changes in your nose would help balance your nose in relation to your appearance, as this is often the case. Your surgeon can do this with computer imaging software.
Thanks for the question and posting photos. Best due to your age to seek in person evaluations with a parent from boarded surgeons in your area.

Rhinoplasty for the bulbous tip with thin skin.
Rhinoplasty for the bulbous tip with thin skin is only for experienced rhinoplasty surgeons since the thin skin will show every small irregularity. For 35 years I have used several different techniques to avoid this. The cost is $7500 depending on whether anything else needs to be done when I examine your nose.
