Is it more cost effective to raise my nasal bridge and reduce the tip separately or in the same operation?
Do them at the same time. Tip refinement and bridge elevation can be
done in closed fashion so that you do not have any visible scars.
Find a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties, has great reviews, and has great before and after pictures.

One or two rhioplasty surgeries?
It is hard for me to imagine a situation where for routine cosmetic aspirations it would make sense to have two surgeries instead of one. With that said there are some situations where one might expect a minor revision to be required to achieve an optimal result. This is true for example for complex cleft rhinoplasties.
tip platy and rhinoplasty
It does not make any sense to undergo 2 operations on the nose. It's best to undergo one procedure on the nose, and do it right first time and have one anesthetic and one recovery period. For many examples of rhinoplasty in our practice, please see the link below
Raising Nasal Bridge and Reducing Tip
Not only is it cost effective to do both procedures at the same time, a much more aesthetically pleasing balanced result will be achieved if the entire nose is done during the same operation.. You want a natural proportional result.
Best Rhinoplasty Combines Bridge Work and Tip Work in Same Operation
It would be best to have your tip and bridge operated upon at the same time. Choose your rhinoplasty surgeon most carefully. Good luck and be well.
Nasal tip and radix
Commonly the two are done in the same operative setting. Fixing the tip and the radix area are treated at the same time.
It appears from the answers that have already been placed that the best choice for you is to have all cosmetic refinements done on your nose in one sitting so find a PS in your area who will fullfill your desires.
Rhinoplasty for the tip and bridge.
These r usually done together. See a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon whose work shows he does natural noses--not noses that look done.
Raise the nasal bridge and reduce the tip separately or in the same operation?
It usually makes sense to perform all of the nasal cosmetic improvements that concern you in one stage. It is more cost effective.
Keep in mind that following advice from a
surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to
do without examining you, physically
feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical
history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not
be in your best surgery. Natural appearing results need to be individualized
and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone
else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon certified by the American Board
of American Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American
Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or facial plastic surgeon
(otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss
your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Raising your nasal bridge and reducing the tip
Raising your nasal bridge and reducing the tip are both possible in the same operation. I would see a surgeon who has experience with male rhinoplasty. A strong and straight male nose is achievable.
