What Happens During Surgery For Nose Tip Reshaping?

Surgery that involves nose tip reshaping is more commonly known as a tip rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty surgery is chosen if a patient is looking to change the appearance of their nose and gain more aesthetically pleasing results. For surgery that involves nose tip reshaping, there are several structures of the nose that need to be considered in order to gain the results that you require. The columella is located in the middle of the of the tip of the nose where the septums run around it from the front to the back of the nose. The lower lateral cartilages then sit to the side of the septums creating dome structures which help to cover the tip of the nose. The septums and cartilages are required to be changed to make changes to the tip.

In this video, a case study is provided of a patient who went through surgery for nose tip reshaping. She chose to have the surgery as the tip of her nose was extremely elevated. This was due to the shaping of the dome cartilages. In order to access these, an open or tip rhinoplasty incision is required which is made from the tip of the nose to the upper lip where changes or removals are made. The cartilages can also be used as graft/mask to cover up the issues that the patient has experienced.

The post-op images from the patients’ surgery shows how the nose tip has changed and the results gained from having an open rhinoplasty surgical procedure.
