The nose is in the center of a face in a privileged place therefore we usually want it to be balanced and harmonious with the rest of our face. The presence of deformation of the tip of the nose can be secondary to a trauma, acquired during growth, it can also be linked to a congenital nasal malformation. Tip plasty tends to be for aesthetic reasons, but it can be performed for a functional reason such as solving the breathing problems as well. Rhinoplasty surgeries focus on reshaping the nasal bone, while nasal tip surgery usually involves replacing the cartilage. For aesthetic reasons, the objective of this surgery is to give the tip of the nose a shape proportional to the bridge of the nose and its other parts and to keep it in line with the aesthetics of the face. Your surgeon may reshape, move, or partially remove the cartilage to maintain balance. For excess cartilage tissue, the nose can be moved up the nose to raise the bridge. If your nostrils are too large, your surgeon can remove parts of the skin at the base of the nose.
For people with a narrow, boxy, bulbous or broad nose, tip plasty or nose tip surgery is recommended. Patients who are not satisfied with the shape or size of the tip of their noses are good candidates for nose tip plasty if they do not have any condition that would interfere with surgery as a result of a medical examination. Patients with breathing problems caused by the tip of their nose can also benefit from nose tip surgery.
