What is the Cost to Correct Only a Bulbous Tip? (photo)

I am satisfied with the bridge of my nose, but not the tip. When I run two fingers down the bridge it is fairly straight, but the tip is bulbous. I am 17 and have been insecure about my nose for years. What would be the average cost to correct only the tip?

Tip rhinoplasty

Refinement of the tip can be done via suturing techniques and some cartilage reduction.   You would need to discuss this with your parents so they are in agreement to proceed as well.  Price varies greatly so call several offices to get an idea in your area.  Best wishes!

Cost for Bulbous Tip Rhinoplasty

The average cost in my office for this type of cosmetic nasal reshaping of the tip is around $6600. Make sure you consult with a board certified rhinoplasty expert and do not let cost be the final determining factor for your case.

Bulbous Tip Correction

    Correcting a bulbous tip may cost less than another type of rhinoplasty in some practices, but the tip can be more challenging than other types of corrections.  You may be able to get this done for $5000 or less in some instances.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
