Considering rhinoplasty?

It is possible to subtly refine the nasal tip with rhinoplasty surgery. In general, the cost of a primary rhinoplasty can range from $10,000 - $15,000 depending on the individual circumstances of the patient. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Tip rhinoplasty

Tip rhinoplasty is a straightforward procedure.  When you find a surgeon in your area, you can see if other changes in your nose would help balance your nose in relation to your appearance, as this is often the case.  Your surgeon can do this with computer imaging software.

Narrowing a bulbous tip

 Refinement of the nasal tip involves a suturing technique to narrow the tip cartilages in combination with cartilage removal when needed. Also important to make sure that the new tip balances with the remainder of the nose so a full rhinoplasty may be needed. Virtual rhinoplasty software is available on our site review to see what your new nose tip may look like.

Rhinoplasty for the bulbous tip with thin skin.

Rhinoplasty for the bulbous tip with thin skin is only for experienced rhinoplasty surgeons since the thin skin will show every small irregularity. For 35 years I have used several different techniques to avoid this. The cost is $7500 depending on whether anything else needs to be done when I examine your nose.
