Rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose

Rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose involves improving the shape and/or removing defects on the tip of the nose. Depending on the anatomical features and the desired outcome, surgery may require treatment of cartilage, soft tissue and columella.

before and after rhinoplasty

Thanks to rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose, you can change:

  • The thickness of the area above the tip of the nose
  • Tip protrusion (distance from face)
  • Tip projection (angle between upper lip and tip of nose)
  • Position of the nasal septum

Nose tip surgery is much more complicated than it may seem at first glance. The surgeon needs to plan his actions very precisely - otherwise, the results may go against expectations.

The bone structure and cartilage of the tip of the nose have a significant effect on its appearance. Unsuccessful intervention can lead to distortion of not only the shape of the tip, but also the overall shape of the nose.

How is rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose performed?

The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia and takes from 1 to 2-3 hours. It’s hard to pick out any typical moment in nose tip plastic surgery - almost every surgery is unique in its own way.

The same tasks that surgeons face in different cases will be solved differently - based on the anatomical structure of the nose, the thickness and shape of the cartilage, the strength of the tissue and other individual characteristics of the patient.

The process of preparation and recovery after surgery is not much different from conventional rhinoplasty. It is necessary to stop smoking first and some drugs that affect blood clotting and suture healing, as well as undergo a medical examination to identify possible contraindications.

In the first days after rhinoplasty, swelling, bruising and pain may occur. Recovery after surgery takes about 1-2 weeks, after which it is advisable to protect the nose from physical influences and high blood pressure for another 2-3 weeks (in particular, limit sports),

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

The price for surgery depends on the nature of the change, the qualifications of the doctor and the prestige of the clinic, as well as several other factors.
