I am interested in secondary rhinoplasty. I had my primary rhinoplasty nearly 4 years ago and although they straightened the bridge they didn't do anything to the tip, like I wanted. So I would like the tip reduced, brought back and upturned slightly, and nostrils reduced. Would this cost less than a full rhinoplasty? As it is only tip and cartilage work, not bone. I have attached a photo of the problem area (smiling three quarter right hand side view) and an edited version that I did myself.

Revision Rhinoplasty for Tip Reshaping
Looking at the photos, I think you would be a reasonable candidate for revision rhinoplasty. The cost might be less than a full rhinoplasty if only tip work is being done. However, that is not always the case. A formal evaluation would be necessary to give a more accurate assessment. Make sure you search out someone who has dedicated experience in revision rhinoplasty.
Large Nasal Tip and Nostrils
Your nasal tip including the nostrils can be reduced. The photo-shopped result is reasonable. Cost will probably be less than a full rhinoplasty but this will be discussed during your consultation for a revision procedure.
Based on your photos it appears that you would be a good candidate for surgery, but an in person examination would be essential
