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.

Can a bulbous nose be fixed with a rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty can absolutely help correct a bulbous nose. However, it is important that patients when considering this procedure find a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty.

Bulbous noses are most often corrected via an open rhinoplasty where the soft tissues of the nose are elevated to expose the lower lateral cartilage underneath and narrowing them.
