I agree with your assessment of your situation. This condition can be surgically addressed. Keep in mind however, when one seemingly minor element of the nose is changed- the harmony and balance of the entire nose is changed. Therefore, I recommend a full evaluation of your entire nasal anatomy with the expectation that a full Rhinoplasty may be required to achieve your goals.
Hi, I have performed many Rhinoplasty Surgeries over thje past 30 years. Non smiling photos of your nose form the front and profile view would help in the evaluation. An Open Tip-plasty, that doesn't require a full Rhinoplasty, would allow refinement and adjustment of the uneven, boxy tip.
Hope this helps.
Correcting the nasal tip asymmetry is frequently done by rhinoplasty specialists. The tip can be refined as part of the procedure. I need to see profile and frontal pictures to offer sugestions re technique; ie, is the rest of the nose symmetrical and tip projection should be evaluated. In the ideal result the tip should be proportional to the surrounding nasal features.
A rhinoplasty procedure can address making the 2 nasal tip cartilages more symmetric and less bulbous. Suture techniques and a conservative cartilage removal required. For more information, diagrams and many examples, please see the link and the video below
Although with just one picture it is difficult to give the best advice...Yes, the tip can be made less boxy and more triangular with a rhinoplasty procedure. The difference in tip height can also be evened out with surgery.
There are two pieces of cartilage at the tip of the nose. They're kindof like mcdonalds arches, only they can be very close or very far apart from one another. If they're far, like yours, the tip is boxy. If they're close, the tip is more "V". This can be accomplished quite easily with a tip rhinoplasty. The cartilage is trimmed down and sutures are used to reshape them.
The view you describe is commonly known as the "worm's eye" view. This can be altered through either a closed or open rhinoplasty. Refining the tip, or making it more "V-shaped" as you described can also be performed at the same time as the symmetrizing procedure.
Yes you can get this result from a rhinoplasty. The tip can be bulbous from
over-projected cartilage, fatty tissue under the tip skin and/or previous
surgery. Make sure you choose a surgeon experienced in bulbous tip rhinoplasty. Please see the video below to find out more about tip refining rhinoplasty.
I think you have reasonable goals and just make sure you and your surgeon are on the same page in regards to expectations. By evening out the tip cartilages, it should make the tip less boxy also
Best of luck
Hello. Your goals are very reasonable. A tip plasty performed by a well versed plastic surgeon will give you the results you are hoping for. Good luck.
