Question: The tip of my nose is too round. Can this be corrected with rhinoplasty?
Answer: Many rhinoplasty surgeons have a great deal of training and experience focused on the tip of the nose. This is an area of the nose where people frequently desire a change. Creating a more sculpted appearance is something that rhinoplasty is very effective at and it can change the rounded appearance of the nose. It is also important to remember the patient’s skin type. The thicker the ski, in general the more difficult it will be to obtain a more sculpted result. That does not mean that a sculpted result is not possible, however the improvement may vary depending on the skin type.
