Wide Tip Boston, MA

People notice the tiniest details concerning the nose’s aesthetics because it is in the center of the face. As such, it is no surprise that rhinoplasty, commonly called a “nose job,” is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures.

Various factors motivate patients to seek out nose reshaping treatments. One of these is a wide and round nasal tip, known as a bulbous nasal tip. At Boston Rhinoplasty, we offer the Back Bay bulbous nose job, or wide nose tip rhinoplasty, as a solution to patients who are dissatisfied with their nose tip’s width and other shape-related concerns.

Aesthetic Factors Resolvable with Wide Nose Tip Rhinoplasty

The wide nose tip correction operation can address various nasal structure issues that make a nose tip too wide. There is a different method for each problem and each patient, but all of them smooth out and reduce the size of exaggerated nasal tip shapes. Common aesthetic factors and the technique used to correct them include the following:

  • A large nose tip is due to excessive cartilage in the lower lateral region: The lower lateral section of a nasal tip is the area between the top of the tip and the upper nostrils. When there is too much cartilage here, it might make the nose look too big for the face.
  • An inflated-looking nose tip because the lateral cartilage’s form is overly convex: This version of a bulbous nose is due to the cartilage’s shape being substantially round, causing a protrusion of nostrils and area around the nasal tip.
  • An enlarged nose tip due to vertically oriented cartilage and excessive tissue: A nose’s form is influenced by the amount and position of cartilage and dermal tissue. For example, more vertically aligned cartilage can enlarge the nasal tip, as can a surplus of skin. Having both these things affect the shape of your nose can make it look even wider.
