What is tip plasty?

Tip plasty is a nose job that focuses specifically on nose tip. The tip plasty procedure may involve tip reduction or adjustments to the tip of the nose to create a better angle and more pleasing look without having to undergo a complete rhinoplasty procedure.

Tip Plasty vs Rhinoplasty

A tip plasty can usually be  performed with local anesthesia, since the process is focused on a single area of the nose. A small incision will be made on the inside or outside of the nose to correct the identified areas. After the incision, the nasal tip can be reshaped, rotated, or reduced to make it more harmonious with your other facial features. A nose tip surgery can form a supportive frame by:

  • Partial excision
  • Dissection
  • Repositioning
  • Augmentation

Am I a candidate for nose tip reshaping?

Nose tip reshaping may be right for you if your nasal tip is bulbous, boxy, or drooping. These concerns can impact your self-confidence even if they don't require substantial changes. A tip plasty can address:  

  • Disproportionately large nasal tip
  • Tip that is too long or too short
  • Hooked nose tip
  • Nose tip that projects too far
  • Nasal tip that is too wide 

What are the benefits of a nasal tip reduction by Dr. Miller?

A nasal tip rhinoplasty may not be as extensive as a full rhinoplasty, but the procedure is still complex and requires a skilled plastic surgeon for natural and desirable outcomes. Dr. Miller is a surgeon known for his expertise and extensive experience creating appealing noses.

Dr. Miller conducts thorough and patient-centric treatment plans in his Manhattan office to ensure each procedure is tailored to the patient's unique facial structure and desires. Dr. Miller creates:

  • Better facial symmetry by examining the entire face and considering how to balance the nose with other features.
  • More flattering nose shape by focusing on noticeable characteristics that are displeasing to the eye and streamlining flow with other features.
  • Improved quality of life by addressing aesthetic concerns that impact self-confidence and self-esteem

When can I expect results?

The majority of swelling should subside after two months, but some patients may experience lingering swelling for up to a year. Full results are seen after swelling completely subsides.

Planning for Nose Tip Surgery

Nose tip surgery is a less invasive procedure than rhinoplasty, so it typically requires less recovery time and has fewer risks. The first step is meeting with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has the skills and experience to perform this surgery well. The consultation is a time to discuss your concerns as well as your vision for the procedure. Patients have different goals with nasal tip plasty, and Dr. Miller will need to understand your goals completely to ensure your expectations are met.

Nose Tip Surgery Recovery Time

Every patient experiences a different recovery process, but it is generally shorter than recovery after a full rhinoplasty. Patients can expect to remain home resting for one to two weeks after a nasal tip surgery. Patients should avoid strenuous activities, direct sun exposure, and activities where the nose could get bumped or damaged. After a nose tip surgery, patients should sleep facing upright and elevated to avoid pressure on the nose and keep swelling to a minimum.

Tip Plasty Cost

Many factors contribute to nose tip refinement cost, including:

  • Surgeon’s Fees: experience and complexity
  • Anesthesia: type, length, and who administers
  • Location: doctor's own surgical suite vs. hospital
  • Pre and Post Surgery Care: tests, garments, and medication
