Nasal Tip is a part of the nose and gives much character. The reason to perform a “Tip plasty” is to change the shape of the nasal tip. Commonly, a person who wants to do Tip plasty is to change a nasal tip as it is wide, boxy, bulbous, or narrow and some concern to increase, especially in Asian type.
Other procedures may be performed at the time a nasal tip is addressed during Tip Plasty such as procedures include addressing the width, height, and length of the nose. Tip Plasty can also be performed to improve breathing (e.g. septoplasty, turbinate reduction, spreader grafts).
This procedure is performed with local anesthesia.
