If your nose has a bulbous tip, you may elect to get a procedure that numerous happy patients have gotten before you: rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgeries offered today.
A bulbous tip can be corrected using many methods, one of which is cephalic trimming. This technique involves removing cartilage from the lower lateral cartilages (or LLCs), reshaping them to make them straighter and less rounded. The surgeon must take care not to remove too much cartilage, since this increases the risk of weakening the architecture. This can cause permanent nasal issues like tip collapse, which can manifest as a thin, pinched nasal tip.
During a consultation with Dr. Daria Hamrah, you’ll discuss the right method of bulbous tip correction for you. Set up an appointment with Dr. Hamrah by contacting our office today.
