Blunt or Bulbous Tip Correction

People are said to have a blunt nose tip when 1) the nostrils are too wide, 2) the cartilage on the nose tip is too spread out and 3) there are too much fat and skin tissue on the tip of the nose. By refining the nose tip, you can improve your overall look by finding the perfect balance between your nose and the rest of your face. Simple cases require septal or ear cartilage to shape the nose tip. More complicated cases require additional trimming and tying of the cartilage to create the desired shape. The most complex cases additionally require removal of unnecessary skin and fat. It is important to receive surgery from an experienced doctor because excess removal of skin and cartilage may lead to poor blood circulation and tissue necrosis (premature death of skin cells in a tissue). You may also be left with unwanted results like a pinched tip, or an uneven skin surface. Dr. Choi Min at Answer Plastic Surgery, with his skills and experience of various cases, promises you to give satisfying results with a diverse background.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the most effective way of doing blunt tip correction?

People tend to have a bulbous nose when their nose is large or the soft tissues are thick. It is important to have a skilled doctor for several reasons. First, if the soft tissues are imprecisely removed, you may result in an uneven nose shape or excess thinning of the nose tip, disturbing your blood circulation. When the cartilage is knotted too tightly, it may cause concavity. For such reasons, operations should be performed by an experienced surgeon.

Q:  Will I be able to get a sharp nose after my alar reduction surgery?

Yes. However, it is important to talk with a doctor who fully understands your current nose structure and desired outcome because reducing the only alar may bring unwanted results (such as a flatter look for your nose). For those who appear to have a blunt nose and a large alar, the nose will first be sharpened and then further treated for alar reduction.

Q: Will I have a sharp nose right after the surgery?

Swelling at the tip of the nose may last up to 2-3 months. After this period, your body will adjust and bring out your newly defined, natural-looking nose. (Recovery time may differ depending on each patient.)

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
