My nose is straight and petite through the bridge but has a rather prominant tip which looks big compared to the rest of my features which are pretty small as well. I was considering getting the tip reshaped a bit but wanted to know what I would be getting into before venturing further. What am I looking at as far as price (I'm in the chicago area) and recover time? Also can it be done under local anesthesia? Anything else I should know?
What Can I Expect From Surgery for the Tip of the Nose?

Tip rhinoplasty is sometimes all that is needed to fix the appearance of the nose.
A tip rhinoplasty involves only the cartilages of the nasal tip. It can be done with some sedation and local, but the surgeon is asking the patient to endure a few minutes of painful injections. I can't speak for the cost in the Chicago area. Vido imaging would be very useful in explaining what the surgeon thinks he can accomplish.
