Home General Nasal Cartilage and the Shape of Your Nasal Tip

July 7, 2017

A bulbous nasal tip is one of the most common reasons why people pursue rhinoplasty. Having a nose that has an overly rounded tip can affect the appearance of your entire nose, which in turn will have an impact on your overall appearance.

One of the primary causes of a bulbous tip is the nasal cartilage. If the cartilage located in the nasal tip is too wide, it creates a rounded appearance. The nasal cartilage may also be convex, which will contribute to its bulbous look.

Rhinoplasty is required to alter the shape of the nasal cartilage so that the nasal tip can take on a more refined and attractive appearance. If you want to get rid of your bulbous nasal tip through rhinoplasty, contact us to schedule a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Emmett.
