If you are considering rhinoplasty, it may be because you have a bulbous nasal tip. A bulbous nasal tip is where the tip of a patient’s nose is described as particularly big, round or pronounced. The bulbous nasal tip can be so prominent that it distracts from the rest of one’s face.
There are a few reasons for someone to have a bulbous nasal tip. Thick skin, as is often the case with ethnic minorities, can be the cause for the nasal tip to look rounder or bulbous. Also, excessive cartilage in the lower sections of the nose can affect the size and shape of the nasal tip. Most people have a combination of the two factors that contribute to the shape of their bulbous nasal tip. Sitting down and consulting with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Gene Sloan can help you hash out the details of your particular concerns.
