What does the nose tip surgery involve?
In order to gain satisfactory results that meet your expectations, you should choose the most qualified surgeons who perform this kind of surgery in the clinics and hospitals in Bursa, Turkey, Izmir, Istanbul, Ankara, and Antalya.
When the skin of the nose tip is thick and rigid to refine, it is often necessary to rely on special techniques that unite the cartilage and insert grafts that give support and definition.
It is necessary to vary the inclination of the tip by raising it and increasing the nasolabial angle in order to obtain an ideal nose shape.
Another important phase is to reduce the protrusion of the nasal tip that must be brought back in line with the new height of the nose form in order to avoid any particular type of imperfection that can be the result of rhinoplasty that is performed improperly.
All changes to the nasal tip are obtained by modeling the nasal wings that support structures which give shape to the tip and ensure normal breathing. In more rare cases, it is necessary to modify the lobules in order to reduce their excessive lateral protrusion or the nostrils to narrow them or make them less evident.

When do you need to consider tip plasty in Turkey?
The correction of the nose tip or partial rhinoplasty takes place on the soft structures of the tip, namely the cartilage and skin. The nose tip surgery can be performed to change these structures without touching the deep bones.
What are the problems that can be adjusted?
The shape of the alar cartilage as well as the relationships with the other adjacent cartilaginous structures can also lead to functional defects (alterations of the nasal valves) so the correction of the tip can correct the aesthetic and functional problems.
Who should not undergo this corrective surgery?
There are no particular contraindications, those who undergo nasal tip plasty must understand well that the correction concerns only the terminal part of the nose and in some cases this correction may reveal other defects present in the proximal portions. In fact, Nose tip correction may include both width reduction and shape modification.
Why does the patient choose to modify the nose tip?
The main reason behind choosing this kind of non-invasive surgery is the disproportion of the volume or projection of the tip compared to the rest of the nose. Therefore, the search for a more harmonious shape leads the patient to choose to perform an operation to correct the nose tip. This less invasive surgery can be performed through a closed or open technique. The surgeon will be in charge of choosing the approach that matches your specific needs based on the deformities of the nasal tip.
What are the methods used to correct deformities?
Changes in the nose tip are obtained by modeling the alar cartilage, removing the excess (width or length), and inserting cartilage grafting to give support and shape to the present structures.
What is the right preparation for the nose tip surgery?
Nose tip surgery can be performed under local anesthesia in the simplest cases or under local anesthesia and sedation in the most complex cases. In the first case, no preparation is necessary, while in the second, fasting is crucial before the intervention.
Consultation is a fundamental moment to evaluate the problem, to talk with the patients, and to understand what are their expectations and what are the real surgical possibilities. It is an essential phase before any surgery and therefore even before the tip plasty. Consultation cannot be replaced by information taken from the internet, by forums, or anything else. Precisely because it is so important, the consultation before the intervention may take a long time and the patients will eventually have clear ideas about the techniques and the possible complications related to partial rhinoplasty. The size and shape of the nose tip will be chosen according to the clinical picture, the patient’s requests, and the results that surgery can offer.
What should be done after the intervention?
Nose tip surgery involves the employment of a small external nasal splint for a few days and the use of small nasal swabs for the first 24 hours.
The recovery time of nose tip surgery is shorter than rhinoplasty since it is a less invasive surgery. Patients may experience less bruising, less swelling, and less discomfort.
Are there other methods to regulate the nasal tip?
In some particular cases, it is possible to use hyaluronic acid fillers to make small changes to the nose tip. These procedures cannot be considered as a surgery and they do not offer long-term results because the materials used are reabsorbed by the body.
