What Procedure Should I Get For A Slightly Bulbous, Downturned Nose Tip?

Hi. I think the tip is too big like a ball, and the bit between the nostrils goes too low. Is there something that could be done? thanks

Rhinoplasty will help you. Be sure to find a surgeon with experience. You don't just need reduction but considerable reshaping to achieve the result you are looking for. Also plan on being patient post operatively as you will need time for your skin envelope to shrink and revel the full result.

For a downturned tip, trimming the lower cartilages will cause the tip to rotate up.   By trimming the cartilages the bulbosity of the tip will decrease.  For overall cosmetic facial harmony, it appears that your chin may be a little weak.  The pictures are a start but consultatoin with a reputable, Board Certified Surgeon who specializes in Rhinoplasty would be helpful.

Assuming that you want to change the appearance of your nose and after reviewing your photos it appears that you could benefit from a rhinoplasty procedure.  This can be performed as an outpatient procedure.  It's best to see a surgeon who is experienced in performing this procedure.

Rhinoplasty for Downturned Nose with Bulbous Tip

A rhinoplasty by an experienced surgeon will refine your tip, improve the hanging columella, and slightly rotate the tip. I encourage you do your nose so it is proportional with the surrounding facial features.

Well-performed Rhinoplasty Surgery may help improve the appearance of your bulbous, droopy tip.

I read your concerns and reviewed your photos.

You appear to have a bulbous tip and a hanging columella. Rhinoplasty Surgery may result in tip narrowing, and straightening of the excessive curvature of your lobule - columella complex.

Be sure to consult several reputable, certified Rhinoplasty Specialists with many photos of their work.

Regards from NJ.

What Rhinoplasty procedure for a downturend bulbous tip

From the photo, it does appear that your nasal tip is bulbous.  A tip plasty, would thin the nasal tip making it thin and more symmetric at the proper angle of rotation.
