Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty Options
A crooked tip and nasal base can give the entire nose a look of misalignment, which can make the overall face appear asymmetrical. Correcting this crookedness at the tip can make the entire nose appear straighter, as well as potentially help with breathing problems due to obstructed airways.
If a nasal tip is disproportionately wide or otherwise bulbous, Dr. Williams can perform nose tip reshaping to refine the tip, making it more narrow and defined. Great care must be taken to not remove too much cartilage, so choosing a plastic surgeon with significant experience in nasal tip rhinoplasty is crucial.

The opposite of a bulbous nose, a pinched tip is when the lowest third appears overly narrow, making the entire nose appear to come to a point, almost like a pencil.
