Simple rhinoplasty. Question?
Most rhinoplasties consist of three parts. refining (usually lowering the bridge), making the tip cartilages smaller,less bulbous and less boxy. elevating the tip and narrowing the nasal bones by 'in-fracturing' the nasal bones. This is a simplification because every nose is unique and different procedures are done for each individual patient. Be sure to consult with a Plastic Surgeon experienced in nasal aesthetic surgery who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Check out his web site for before and after pictures of rhinoplasty surgery.
Modifications to the nasal tip can be done during rhinoplasty.
Refining and reshaping the nasal tip is one of the most common and most important parts of rhinoplasty.
Raising or lowering the tip can be accomplished during surgery.
The overall balance of the nose and the face is always important when making changes to the nose.
Consult a doctor close to you to talk about your goals.

A Tip Rhinoplasty is Used to Reshape the Tip of the Nose Including Raising It
A tip rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty or nose job that is used
to reshape the tip or end of the nose.
It can tilt the tip up or down, reshape a bulbous tip to a more delicate
or refined shape, fill out a pinched tip or reconstruct other
abnormalities. A surgeon must be careful
to take into consideration the effects that a tip rhinoplasty can have on the
overall shape and appearance of the nose.
Often more than just working on the tip is required to keep the nose in
balance as well as in harmony with the rest of the face.
I hope that helps.
Simple rhinoplasty question
Yes, it is possible to raise the tip of the nose with a rhinoplasty procedure. It is possible to modify the shape of the nasal tip by making it less bulbous. A tip rhinoplasty accomplishes narrowing the tip of the nose with suture techniques and sometimes a conservative cartilage removal as well. All this can be accomplished with a closed rhinoplasty approach as an outpatient surgical procedure
Rotation of the nasal tip
Great question. Yes, most pictures do show a dorsal hump removal as this is usually the one feature of the nose that is most noticeable and improved upon. The nasal tip is another region of the nose that is addressed with a rhinoplasty. Elevating the tip, also known as increasing rotation, can be performed for the right patient. It is always best to get a consultation with a rhinoplasty specialist to get a thorough evaluation including photos and computer imaging. Best of luck.
Hi Harley. Never any foolish questions. Tip reshaping is a very reasonable rhinoplasty objective. Tip elevation is also a reasonable goal. This typically involves an open rhinoplasty approach. The soft tissues are gently elevated, allowing direct access to the alar cartilages that comprise the nasal tip. This cartilages are then sculpted and sutured.
Hope this is helpful.

Rhinoplasty - Tip Reshaping
Yes, it is possible and quite common. During the primary consultation,
discuss with your physician your aesthetic goals. The actual method of
reshaping the tip of your nose will depend on various factors, including your
skin thickness, tip cartilage, and desired look. It is important that you feel
comfortable with the plastic surgeon’s suggestions as this can be a permanent
procedure. Good luck!
Yes. That is possible and one of the more common types of rhinoplasty. A droopy or boxy tip is often what prompts a desire for rhinoplasty. Just choose your board-certified plastic surgeon, carefully. Make sure that rhinoplasty is something that they specialize in. Good luck.
Rhinoplasty Esthetic Results
Yes, Rhinoplasty can certainly raise the tip of a nose. Rhinoplasty can successfully modify many different areas of the nose, so the most important factor is that you choose a qualified surgeon (ie: a Facial Plastic Surgeon) to perform the surgery. Rhinoplasty is a highly specialized procedure and choosing and expert from a reputable facility is of utmost importance in order to achieve the specific aesthetic results you are looking for. Use of a 3D imaging system during your consultation will be helpful to make sure you and the surgeon are unified in the end goal.
Changing the tip with rhinoplasty
Yes, you can raise the tip of the nose and reshape it during rhinoplasty. How you do it depends on each nose. It can be by removing cartilage, but there are other ways to do it that work better in different kinds of noses. In a consultation with a plastic surgeon, they can tell you what would be the best way for you, if you are a good candidate and what the possible outcome could be.
