Simple Rhinoplasty Question?
- Asked by Harleyquinn

Hi, I have a seemingly foolish question about the rhinoplasty procedure that I have never seen directly asked our answered. I want to know if it is possible to raise the tip of the nose or maybe completely reshape it. Is that possible? Of all the before and after pictures I've seen, I've always just seen a dorsal hump removed/lessened or a curve to the bridge added. Is it possible to raise the tip and remove cartilage? Thanks!
Rhinoplasty can address many issues, including a dorsal hump, a bulbous tip, a boxy tip, columellar show and others
Rhinoplasty can be many, many different things. There are infinite combinations of the operation that can be utilized to address the specific issues you are having. The tip can be softened, rounded, lowered, elevated, made more narrow, made less narrow and so on. The sides can be elevated, lowered, narrowed, strengthened, weakened shortened and so on. The bony part of the nose can be manipulated as well. If you find yourself in a conversation with a plastic surgeon and these things do not come up, it is advisable to seek another opinion. Find a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and keep looking until you feel comfortable.
Raise and Refine the Tip in Nose Surgery
While reducing a bump on the bridge of the nose may be the most common request and manoeuvre in nose surgery (rhinoplasty), it is only one of many possible concerns that can be addressed. Lifting, lowering, or repositioning the tip of the nose is an important part of most rhinoplasty operations. This also usually involves reducing, reshaping and refining the tip as well.
Yes it is possible. Most patients in my practice want their nasal tips lifted and refined in addition dorsal hump removal.

This is an outstanding question. Rhinoplasty is a delicate balance between all its different elements (the tip, dorsum, nostrils, et cetera) and therefore often changing one part of the nose will either change the other parts or can make them look different. Some patients want only refinement of the tip of the nose and want no changes to the rest of the nose. This can defnitely be done, but the rest of the nose needs to be considered and therefore a consultation by a board certified surgeon Rhinoplasty specialists will really help bring everything into perspective. Often, when you look at post-operative rhinoplasty picture, if the patient had an obvious bump on the bridge of the nose, then that is what draws peoples attention in the post-operative pictures. Often, however, those patients also had work done to the rest of the nose in order make everything look harmonious. Hope this helps.
Tip Changes in Rhinoplasty Surgery
Changing tip size, position, or contour is a very important part of most rhinoplasty surgery. There are many different techniques used to accomplish all of these changes. Consult with a rhinoplasty specialist to determine what will be done to meet your goals.
Improving the appearance of the nasal tip
It is possible to raise the tip of the nose and reshape it. I would recommend a consult with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist who uses computer imaging software. He/she may morph a photo of you to give you an idea of how the final result of surgery may appear. This will serve as a great communication tool between you and your prospective surgeon. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

In answer to your question, it is definitely possible to raise the nasal tip as well as reshape it. These are some of the most common maneuvers employed during rhinoplasty. The ideal time to address the nasal tip is during a rhinoplasty in which the dorsum (bridge) is being addressed.

Nasal tip surgery for a cute nose
Nasal tip surgery, or tip-plasty, is commonly performed during a rhinoplasty. In fact, I reduce, refine or modifiy the tip in almost all rhinoplasty procedures that I perform. Tip reduction and suturing techniques help to create a cuter appearance to the nose.
