Nasal Tip Plasty

Nasal tip plasty is a surgical procedure which is aimed at getting a better-looking nasal tip. The nasal tip specifically means treating the tip of the nose and not another part of the nose. The nasal tip is the focal point to your face, that is why it is important to achieve an overall balance and symmetry to the facial proportions.  
Ideal nasal tip characteristics:
  • A bulbous, bulky or broad nasal tip that looks heavy compared to the rest of the face  
  • A pointy tip  
  • A droopy or rotated downwards tip  
  • A tip that lacks definition or that is too short  
  • A nose tip that turns upwards which would make the nostrils visible from a front view 
Nasal tip plasty is a simple procedure but with all surgical procedures, there are risks involved. The surgery is aimed at the nose tip and does not treat any other part of the nose as stated above. All benefits and risks will be discussed with you by your surgeon in your consultation appointment prior to your surgery date. The procedure is generally performed under local anesthetic or sedation. Patients usually go home on the same day after surgery. Expect improvement and not perfection.
