Bulbous or Boxy Tip Rhinoplasty

Dr. Kassir specializes in bulbous tip, or boxy tip rhinoplasty. In an ideal situation, the nasal tip forms a nice equilateral triangle when observed from the base view. However, in some individuals, the nasal tip is bulbous due to broad underlying nasal cartilages. This can produce a boxy or in some cases, a trapezoidal tip. An effective to combat this condition is rhinoplasty. This can be done by reducing the alar cartilage, cephalic trimming of the lower lateral cartilages, and using sutures to manipulate the angles of the cartilages.

“I am in love with my nose and lip lift! I did very extensive research trying to find someone who specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty. I found the best! His work speaks for itself! Also coupled with the fact that this man was a sculptor, and is down to earth, his personality made him the one for me! The biggest compliment I could have received a week after my surgery was that all my clients just thought I looked “extra beautiful” and had no idea I had any cosmetic work done ??????, thank you so much”
