Is it possible to shorten the tip of the nose without changing the nasal bridge? Los Angeles rhinoplasty surgeon

Is it possible to shorten the tip of the nose without changing the nasal bridge?

 

The nose is composed of several different elements including the nasal bridge, nasal tip, and nostrils.  During a rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will re-proportion these three areas in order to redefine the nasal contour and improve the cosmetic appearance of the nose.  The nasal tip is often a target for rhinoplasty and can be improved and recontoured in order to blend in more harmoniously with the rest of the face and nose.  Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed as an outpatient surgical procedure in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office. 

 

Dr. Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and performs surgery in both Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  By correcting the nasal tip, the nasal bridge and nostrils can appear more harmonious and natural looking in comparison to the tip.  Common correction for the tip includes the reduction of a bulbous nose, uplifting of a droopy tip, and correction of a pointy tip.  If you have questions about rhinoplasty surgery or a specific tip rhinoplasty, please call our patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.  Our office will be happy to help you coordinate a surgical consultation for correction of your nasal tip.
