Tip Rhinoplasty: Questions & Answers

How is a tip rhinoplasty different from a typical rhinoplasty?

A tip rhinoplasty, as the name suggests, is only dedicated to the reshaping (usually elevation or depression), rotation, or other modification of the tip. In this procedure, the nasal bones are not tampered with, leading to quicker recovery times. However, this option is usually limited to select patients because, often, rhinoplasties often need to engage the bridge of the nose.

Can a tip rhinoplasty lead to a thinner nose?

It is important for patients when considering a tip rhinoplasty to consider the name of the procedure carefully. A “tip” rhinoplasty restricts itself essentially to its namesake, the tip of the nose, not the bridge or any other area. Therefore, it is a procedure which is limited to a specific set of patients with tip-related deformities only. Often, patients who desire a thinner nose will need to have a full rhinoplasty done so that the tip does not look disproportionately thin.
