Read on to learn more about rhinoplasty for a bulbous tip.

Do I Have a Bulbous Tip?

A bulbous tip lacks definition. Noses that are slender with a generally triangular shape are considered cosmetically pleasing. Individuals with a bulbous tip describe their nose as “large,” “disproportionate,” and “round.” A bulbous tip can leave the overall face appearing larger or rounder than it otherwise would.

A bulbous nose results from poorly defined cartilage or thick nasal skin. Genetics may be the cause of a bulbous tip, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Cohen will describe how rhinoplasty can restore harmony to your facial features by reshaping the tip of your nose.

Benefits of Bulbous Tip Rhinoplasty

Our nose is one of our most prominent facial features. Having a bulbous tip can leave individuals feeling insecure about their appearance. Unfortunately, dermal fillers and other non-surgical procedures cannot address the underlying cause of a bulbous tip. To add definition to the tip of your nose, rhinoplasty will be performed. Dr. Cohen will work to produce maximum cosmetic results using minimal surgical interventions.

Following your bulbous tip rhinoplasty in Orange, you can enjoy dramatic cosmetic benefits that can boost your self-esteem. Many of our patients tell us that their only regret is not pursuing the cosmetic benefits of bulbous tip rhinoplasty sooner.

How Will Dr. Cohen Reshape My Nose?

Dr. Cohen is a fully-accredited and board-certified surgeon. Using advanced surgical techniques that he has honed over 15 years, Dr. Cohen will restructure cartilage and soft tissue in your nose using one of two surgical techniques.

Closed rhinoplasty allows Dr. Cohen to make incisions inside the nostrils so he can make alterations to the cartilage that support the nose. Once that step is complete and additional soft tissue is removed as needed, Dr. Cohen will use intricate suturing techniques to hold your nasal structures in their new orientation while the nose heals. Open rhinoplasty requires that a small incision is made on the columella that separates the nostrils.

The outpatient procedure generally takes two to three hours to complete, and initial recovery takes seven to ten days.
