Drooping tip, Could cutting depressor septi muscle improve the nose tip?
-The depressor speti can be released and that would give an improvement for the shape of the tip by allowing the tip to be lifted minimally.
-Botox can also relax that muscle and help the shape of a drooping tip.
- If the Width of the nasal base is an issue, then alar base reduction can be used with muscle modification to improve the tip. When the alar base move up with smiling this may be the best option.
This can be done in office and we have done it for many patient with reasonable and affordable cost under local.
-For more information.please refer to a landmark article that I have written which is published in aesthetic plastic surgery journal on Algorithm for correction of drooping tip.
Hope this was helpful.

A recent study, not yet published, showed the tip support is the main issue, not the DNS. Botox or Xeomin works good too. I would not have my muscle cut based on recent findings. All the best, "Dr. Joe"
