Nasal Tip

Bridge, Tip and Base Narrowing

This is a great case example of how an ethnic, female nose can be narrowed throughout - meaning the nasal bridge, tip and base - while maintaining a natural appearance. I saw this female patient for rhinoplasty consultation on several different occasions - mostly because we both wanted to be very open and in agreement with the intended goal in terms of cosmetic nose reshaping. One of the most important factors in her case -... Continue Reading

The patient presented here is an illustrative case of teenage rhinoplasty with specific focus on cosmetic nasal tip reshaping. She is a very pleasant young lady who consulted with me (along with her parents) to see if she was a candidate for rhinoplasty surgery. Her main complaint was that her tip region drooped down excessively. Teenage Rhinoplasty Before and After

Droopy Nasal Tip Correction

Correcting a droopy nasal tip is one of the most common maneuvers I perform in terms of cosmetic rhinoplasty. We have previously touched on this topic in another of our rhinoplasty tutorial discussions. But additional case examples, like this one here, help to further highlight this type of cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery. This patient from San Diego desired to have her nose reshaped to primarily address the droopy nasal tip. This is also referred to as a ptotic... Continue Reading

Pinched Nasal Tip Repair

Pinched Nose Following Rhinoplasty This is a great case example that demonstrates repair of a pinched nasal tip. This gentleman had previously undergone rhinoplasty surgery performed by a different plastic surgeon a few decades ago. Unfortunately, as time went on, his nasal tip began to collapse on both sides - resulting in pinching of the nostril side walls. This is readily seen in his preoperative frontal photograph shown here. Not only did this type of... Continue Reading

Revision Rhinoplasty Tip Rebuilding

This is a great case example of how revision rhinoplasty can help correct functional problems following previous, unsuccessful rhinoplasty surgery. This patient was referred to my office by a past rhinoplasty patient of mine. He had undergone nose surgery that was performed by a plastic surgeon in the Orange County area. Unfortunately, in the process of reshaping his nasal tip, something was done to the cartilage support resulting in collapse of his right side. Cosmetically, this created... Continue Reading

Asymmetric Tip Collapse

This is a case example of a patient who desired to have her nose reshaped following two prior unsuccessful attempts performed by a different plastic surgeon. Her surgeries were performed over 10 years prior. Since then, her nose developed asymmetric collapse of the tip region - with more collapse seen on her right side. This was bothering her enough that she wanted to have the tip reshaped to be more symmetrical. In addition, she desired... Continue Reading

Cephalic Orientation of Tip Cartilage

Many rhinoplasty candidates may hear they have what are called cephalically oriented lower lateral cartilages, or cephalic orientation of their tip cartilage. Cephalic orientation of the nasal tip cartilage is a common occurrence and source of patients seeking rhinoplasty surgery. In fact, this problem accounts for a significant number of patients who have a bulbous nasal tip. This case example presented here demonstrates features of this very common abnormality and highlights one of the more... Continue Reading

Teenage Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Over the past decade (and even more so in the last 5 years), my practice has seen a steady rise in the number of teenage patients seeking cosmetic nose job, or rhinoplasty, surgery. This observation is backed up by a number of recent studies that have confirmed the increasing number of teenage patients seeking cosmetic nose reshaping surgery. Such a trend is really not surprising, though, given the rapid growth of various social media platforms,... Continue Reading

Droopy Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty

Droopy Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty This is a great case example of how rhinoplasty surgery can help to address a ptotic nasal tip. The term 'ptosis' means 'drooping' of the nasal tip region. These type of noses are also commonly referred to as drooping noses and hook noses. When you see a ptotic nasal tip, you really do notice it because one can easily appreciate how the tip of the nose appears to drop off from... Continue Reading

Persian Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Persian (Iranian) rhinoplasty is a very common type of Middle Eastern cosmetic nose surgery performed in my practice. In fact, I would say that Persian (Iranian) patients make up a significant portion of my ethnic rhinoplasty patient population. This should not really be surprising, however, since Iran is widely considered by many insiders to be the rhinoplasty capital of the world - making nose job surgery quite acceptable within the Persian culture. Presented here is an excellent example of cosmetic... Continue Reading

Nasal MOHS Cancer Repair

Many patients in this area of the country are, unfortunately, diagnosed with various types of skin cancer involving the nose. The procedure done to remove the skin cancer is often times referred to as 'MOHS surgery' and is most commonly performed by specialized dermatologists. In many cases, the nose can be reconstructed shortly after the MOHS procedure to help restore a natural appearance. In some patients, however, this is not the case and they end up... Continue Reading

African-American Nose Job

This is a great case example that illustrates many of the considerations involved in African-American rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery. Like many African-American rhinoplasty patients seeking nose job surgery, this young lady from San Diego found my office after researching rhinoplasty surgery online. She then schedule a consultation with my office to determine whether or not cosmetic nose surgery was an appropriate choice for her. African-American Rhinoplasty Presentation On presentation, her main desire was to have... Continue Reading
