Make small or large refinements to your nasal tip (the lower 1/3 of your nose), such as correcting a so-called “bulbous” tip

Return to the Main Gallery of Various Types of Noses

Many patients with a wide tip want it narrower, but you have to be careful.  A tip that is too narrow can take on a very “operated” look.  When viewed from the side, the tip of the nose should have a well-demarcated tip-defining point, the farthest projection of the tip from the lip. When viewed from the front, the nasal domes, the two prominent and well-defined points in the nasal tip, define this area.  What creates these domes is a sharp bend in the same lower lateral cartilages that I discussed in item #3.  The “bulbous tip” is usually a combination of thick skin and large, widely spaced nasal domes.  The domes are often separated by fat or a thick ligament and can be moved closer together.  Thick skin is a harder issue to deal with.  The addition of cartilage to the tip in the form of a tip graft will often give the appearance of more tip definition in a thick skinned nose.  Tips are also narrowed with and by scoring the cartilage superficially.

For examples of Dr. Bentkover’s patients that have had nasal tip refinements please visit our before and after rhinoplasty photo gallery.
