Nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty or "nosejob") is incredibly common. Although there are certainly people who dislike their entire nose, one of the most common complaints I hear is that people dislike the tip of their nose in particular.
Why is the tip of the nose special?
The nasal tip is an anatomically special region since its shape is attributed to the cartilage of the nose and the thickness of the skin on top of it. This means that a tip rhinoplasty-- or a nosejob surgery that focuses on the tip alone-- does not involve breaking the nasal bones.
This in turn means a faster recovery, less bruising, less swelling, and less pain.
Tip rhinoplasty has several aesthetic benefits:
1. A refined nasal tip gives the face a sharper, more feminine appearance.
2. A refined nasal tip makes the face appear slimmer even when a person's weight remains the same.
3. A refined nasal tip is a subtle change that frequently goes unnoticed by friends and colleagues.
What is the next step?
If you are interested in a tip rhinoplasty, please call (212) 452-2400 to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Devgan. Depending on your specific concerns, a tip rhinoplasty can be done with local anesthesia only, while you are awake, which adds to the safety and ease of the procedure.
