Tip Correction/Refinement

The nasal tip is made up of a delicate framework of cartilage enveloped by skin, fat, and fibrous connections. A well-shaped nasal tip gives a pleasing appearance to the nose by casting proper shadows to create tip defining points.

Who would benefit from a tip correction and refinement?

The nasal tip would require correction in cases of deviation from trauma, infection, or congenital causes. Refinement is required in cases of a bulky or bulbous nasal tip. Occasionally, previous rhinoplasty leads to tip abnormalities that require improvement. Addressing the tip can also help with lengthening the nose and columella.

How is a tip correction and refinement performed?

Tip work is performed by removing soft tissue and cartilage, suturing cartilage together, or adding cartilage grafts to the framework. It can be performed through a closed or open approach, depending on the goals and the amount of work required.
