Rhinoplasty for droopy tip. Is there a surgeon out there that can give me the nose I want without making it too short?
Doctor Answers 6
Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experince in Rhinoplasty. This can be done.
I, like a few other colleagues offer online consultations where you send us your photos and we can estimate the cost. Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and discuss what will be the proper treatment to achieve the result you desires.

Ask to see several pre and post operative photos and discuss the techniques proposed to achieve the results you desire.

Please go to a surgeon who really understands this "deformity" as it is very misunderstood. The problem is more complex than previously thought. On my website you can find a lot more information or if you can, try to access either of my 2 articles on the Plunging Tip in Rhinoplasty. Make sure to look at a lot of before and after photos of patients who your surgeon has operated on to make sure you like the "look" of the noses.
Best of luck!

No plastic surgeon that I know will give you a guarantee that you will look exactly a certain way and so sometimes the imaging can be a bit unrealistic.If you present to a plastic surgeons office and say that you would like a smoother dorsum, some tip rotation, or more tip projection then your surgeon should be able to accomplish this. On the other hand, if you present to the office and say that you want to look exactly a certain way, then that may be unrealistic and you may be disappointed.
If you can explain to your surgeon what your goals are then your surgeon can tell what is possible, how it will be achieved, and what you can realistically expect as a result. Best of luck to you!
