Compare 14 clinics

Tip plasty, also called nose tip surgery or tip rhinoplasty is a type of plastic surgery procedure, a sub-treatment of rhinoplasty, used by patients from all around the world to change or alter the tip of their nose for a more aesthetically pleasing image.

Tip Plasty Candidates

Tip plasty or nose tip surgery is recommended for individuals that have a narrow, boxy, bulbous or wide nose. Any patient dissatisfied with the shape or size of their nose is a good candidate for tip rhinoplasty or tip plasty. Patients with breathing problems caused by the tip of their nose can also benefit from nose tip surgery.

Am I Suitable for Tip Plasty?

Nose tip surgery or tip plasty is a safe and simple plastic surgery procedure but as with any surgery, certain precautions need to be taken into consideration. Individuals suffering from serious health conditions such as heart problems, lung disease or morbid obesity may not be ideal candidates for nose tip surgery. Children and adolescents cannot have tip plasty, because their physical development is not over. Some patients may require a full rhinoplasty instead of a tip rhinoplasty.

Preparing for Tip Plasty

Patients should avoid any blood thinners, vitamins or herbal teas at least 2 weeks before going in for nose tip surgery. As smoking can have a negative impact on the tip plasty’s result, patients should stop smoking at least a month before and after surgery.

How is Tip Plasty Performed?

There are two main types of rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. Depending on the patient’s wishes the doctor may opt for one or the other, but for nose tip surgery, only the open technique can be used.

When it comes to anesthesia, there are two options: general anesthesia and local anesthesia. Once the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon can proceed to make an incision in the columella. A cartilage graft may be needed for the tip plasty procedure. The surgeon will then begin to alter and reshape the cartilage, skin and other nasal tissue according to the patient’s wishes. Once the desired result is achieved, the surgeon will close the incision by using stitches and then bandages are applied to the area. The tip plasty recovery period can begin.
