Lift drooping tip

Any revisional specialist can lift a drooping tip. It is not a difficult procedure . Not lifting too much is important

Hello, and thank you for the question. Sorry to hear you are not happy with your rhinoplasty result. An in-person consultation with a rhinoplasty specialist would really be necessary to provide you with the best advice. He or she will be able to make recommendations following an exam of your nose. In general, cartilage grafts can be used to lift a drooping tip. I hope this information helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
