What is tip correction rhinoplasty surgery?

A tip correction rhinoplasty surgery is incredibly similar to a regular rhinoplasty surgery, however, it focuses on the tip of the nose rather than undergoing surgery to alter the bridge or the shape of the rest of the nose. This is an incredibly common request as a number of patients are actually happy with the general shape of their nose and simply want the tip to be more proportionate and refined.

Generally, this is down to the tip of the nose being too bulbous and there are a number of factors that can contribute to this. The first factor is the thickness of the skin on the tip of the nose which requires the removal of a certain amount of underlying cartilage in addition to the removal of fibro-fatty tissue that has caused the bulbous appearance. The second major factor is the relationship and distance between the upper lip and the tip of the nose which can become out of proportion. It’s a common occurrence that the tip of the nose appears to look bulbous due to it drooping which could be due to an over-projected nasal hump at the bridge, but can also be down to the weight of the tissue inside the tip being too heavy to be supported at an appropriate and proportionate angle.

In order to perform a tip correction surgery, your surgeon will assess the amount of cartilage within the nose and determine exactly how much can safely be removed to ensure that the nose will still remain stable once the surgery has been performed.

What should you expect with a tip correction rhinoplasty surgery?

 

Tip correction rhinoplasty surgery is something that we get asked to perform all the time thanks to the way in which it can alter the appearance of the nose without the need to completely alter the shape of the nose. However, it does carry the same risk as a regular rhinoplasty surgery and as suck, it’s incredibly important to make sure you have researched the surgery and the possible complications and risks before booking in for your surgery. Some of the questions that our patients ask us most frequently are answered below.

As with any other surgery, rhinoplasty has a few complications associated with it and some of the more notable complications are difficulty when breathing, nose bleeds, a change to your sense of smell and damage to the internal cartilage wall of the septum. It’s important to note that while some patients will experience one or more of these complications, others will experience none of them.

It’s entirely possible that undergoing a rhinoplasty surgery can affect your voice, however the changes are normally incredibly subtle and will only be picked up by a trained listener. If you are reliant in your voice for professional reasons, such as being a voice actor, then please discuss this with your surgeon during your consultation.

The nose is not broken during rhinoplasty surgery and instead it is actually cut, this procedure is known as an osteotomy. An osetotome is the tool used to carry out this procedure and it is used to perform very precise cuts to alter the appearance of the bone within the nose, giving it a narrower or straighter result.

Your nose actually stops growing at around age 16, so by this time your shouldn’t notice any more drastic changes to the appearance of your nose without altering it yourself or having any damage caused to it. After a rhinoplasty surgery, your results will be permanent provided that you don’t want to undergo another surgery or suffer an unexpected break to the nose.

After the surgery, you may encounter a few side-effects for a little while that include soreness, swelling and bruising (which can be very prominent around the eyes), stiffness and numbness around the tip of the nose, difficulty when breathing through your nose associated with the swelling, light nose bleeds and sensitivity to the sun so we advise wearing strong sunscreen (especially on the nose) for at least 6 months following the operation.

If your sinus issues are in relation to allergies then rhinoplasty will not be able to help, but due to the fact the surgery changes the shape of your nose it is possible that it can help you to breathe easier (depending on the surgery you have opted for).

Everybody can opt for a rhinoplasty surgery and for those with glasses, we advise taping them to your forehead instead of resting them on the bridge of your nose for a few weeks following your surgery to avoid putting any unnecessary pressure on the bridge of the nose.
