Bulbous Tip Shape
A bulbous or round nasal tip is one of the common reasons patients seek rhinoplasty. As mentioned earlier, rhinoplasty is perhaps the most intricate and demanding procedure in all of plastic surgery. I too would encourage you to seek the advice of a top notch rhinoplasty surgeon in your area as there are several features of your nose that require careful expertise (crooked nose, deviated septum, wide nasal bones, alar retraction). Good luck. A rhinoplasty operation has the potential to be very rewarding.
Questions about nasal shaping
The goal of a cosmetic rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping), as well as any aesthetic surgery, is not so much to 'change' a body area, but really to restore naturally appearing balance that complements each patient's unique appearance. There are certain aesthetic ideals that will improve anyone's appearance as well as individual characteristics that can complement each patient's ethnic and individual features. Reshaping the nasal tip and bridge of the nose while preserving or improving nasal function are the fundamental goals of a rhinoplasty. I prefer to address these issues with each patient and to utilize computer imaging and photography in order to clearly define the realistic goals of a rhinoplasty. Be sure to look for a board certified surgeon with experience in all areas of aesthetic rhinoplasty and one with whom you can clearly communicate your concerns and expectations.

Rhinoplasty, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
