My surgeon has said that he will narrow the bridge, but refuses to do a tipplasty. He said the tip is already pointy. My nose is in reality quite small and nicely shaped apart from a minor imperfection on the bridge (abit wide right near the top between the eyes). I do think the tip could do with some work, however trust his judgement. If I am not pleased with the tip after say a year, is it possible to just get the tipplasty done without dong the entire nose again? Do you agree with my surgeon?

Subtle Rhinoplasty- Smart Surgeon
Your surgeon seems to definitely be someone you can trust. There are 3 points to be made.
1. A Rhinoplasty is, without a doubt, the most difficult of all the facial plastic surgery procedures.
2. Changing a bad nose to a good one is hard.
3. Changing a good nose to a slightly better one is really, really hard.
The take home point is this- If you have a good nose and you want it to be slightly better- refer to the 3 points referenced above before making a decision about surgery. Good Luck
Tip-plasty after Rhinoplasty
Your tip looks very nice in these pictures. There are risks in all procedures - leave it alone.
Tip Reshaping Opinion
I would agree with your surgeon. I would likely not recommend more narrowing or definition given its curent shape. If you did decide to do something down the road, it is certainly possible to do just a tip rhinplasty. Good luck with your surgery and healing process.
