What is Bulbous Tip?


 

It refers to round image nose with blunt and wide nasal tip.

Relatively bulbous nasal tip compared to Caucasians is very common for Asians

since Asians have weak nasal tip cartilage yet thick skin and abundant soft tissues.

Although it may mean "good luck" according to facial phrenology, it cannot really 

create polished impression and it even creates dull impression when the nostrils 

are wide and spread as well.

Causes and methods of bulbous nasal tip


 

Suitable Surgical Method depending on the cause


 

1. Excessive nasal tip soft tissues or over developed nasal tip cartilage

     Surgical Method

     Improvement by partial removal and shaving of the cartilage

 

2. Wide spread nasal tip cartilage

     Surgical Method

    Pushing up the tip with autogenous cartilage strut to make it look sleek. In cases of thick skin, the nasal tip can be reduced by dual dissection

    that removes nasal tip soft tissues, fat and SMAS fascia.

 

3. Wide Alar

     Surgical Method

     Reduce the width by removing the skin inside the nostrils. Centralize the nasal base to make overall nasal tip shape triangular.
