Tip-plasty or rhinoplasty

A tip plasty can certainly be performed, but only in rare circumstances when the remainder of the nose is in excellent balance and only the tip is out of balance with the remainder of the nose.  Most patients undergo a full rhinoplasty whereby the tip, bridge, and any hump are all smoothed and balanced so that it looks very natural.

Nasal tip refinement surgery or Tip-plasty can help to improve a droopy or bent nasal tip. There are various surgical maneuvers that will change the shape and dimensions of the nose.
An evaluation by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will be the best way to achieve your goals.
Thank you for your question! Best of Luck!

Dear haider123,

  • Yes, a rhinoplasty can address all of your concerns
  • Don't worry about the terms "tip plasty" and "rhinoplasty," a good rhinoplasty addresses all of your concerns
  • A consultation would help you get the answers you are looking for

Best regards,
