I have a bulbous tip nose. I want to get my nose to have a normal tip but also want it to look thinner. If I get the bulbous tip fixed, will my nose automatically look skinnier?

William Bruno, MD answers: Will fixing bulbous tip make the nose look thinner?

A: rhinoplasty, bulbous tip

A bulbous tip refers to a rounded, full tip of the nose. By removing cartilage and suturing the cartilages together, the nose can certainly become more refined. The nose will also appear “thinner” and not as wide or rounded. This can be done without fracturing your nose and may even be done under local anesthesia with mild sedation.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling your rhinoplasty surgery.

Best wishes,
