Wide Tip

Balanced nose proportions lend to an attractive appearance. When one part of the nose is larger, it can throw off the cosmetic balance. A wide, round or bulbous nasal tip is a common aesthetic nose issue. While it does not impact the nasal function, the wide tip draws too much attention to the nose. At Dr. Sedgh Facial Plastic Surgery, we perform wide tip rhinoplasty at our surgical center in West Hollywood, CA.

Many individuals with a round or wide tip desire a slimmer, more defined nasal tip. A narrow nasal tip that is more balanced with the width of the bridge blends better with the rest of the facial features. An attractive nose is one that does not overpower the eyes, lips or other focal points of the face. Trimming and reshaping a wide tip can result in a more refined nose shape that is in harmony with the other facial features.

Bulbous Nasal Tip Shaping

Rhinoplasty is needed to effectively reshape a wide or bulbous nasal tip. The goal is to achieve a more proportionate tip that is balanced with the rest of the nose. In most cases, cephalic trimming or removal of cartilage is needed. This must be carefully performed to remove enough to create the desired width and shape without causing a pinched nasal tip. Sutures can also be used to cinch the nasal tip cartilage and cartilage grafts may be used to create the desired appearance.

Refining a wide nasal tip can have a dramatic impact on the nose shape and overall facial appearance. Balancing the nose proportions allows the eyes, lips, cheekbones and other flattering features to shine through. Dr. Jacob Sedgh has the experience and skill to create a beautifully shaped nasal tip that will enhance the beauty of your face.
