If you have a nose that’s pointy, it can be the cause of serious self-consciousness. The nose is such a prominent facial feature, and even minor issues with contour can make a world of difference for your your other features and overall facial symmetry. That’s when a rhinoplasty (nose job) may be ideal.
Dr. Christopher R. Hove has helped countless people in the greater Philadelphia, PA area achieve their cosmetic goals. Let’s talk about what a pointy nose means, and how a cosmetic surgery can make subtle surgical revisions to your appearance.
When someone has a pointy nose, there are a few things that could be causing this:
These two issues also tend to cause long, narrow nostrils, which can increase the appearance of pointiness.
Good candidates for rhinoplasty are people who have issues with the appearance of their nose. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from medical problems that could be exacerbated by a nasal surgery. During the consultation process at our center near Philadelphia, we can assess your situation and determine if you are an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty.
The procedure to correct a pointy nose can be performed in different ways. There are two general surgical procedures to choose from:
Whatever technique is used, surgeons will attempt to deproject the tip. This process means reshaping the cartilage in the tip of the nose so it is not so pointy. This can be done using sutures or actually removing just a little bit of cartilage from the tip.
If you have a pointy nose, a rhinoplasty can make all the difference in the world. The procedure subtly improves the shape and contour of your nose, fixing a droopy tip and making a pointy tip much softer and less pinched in appearance. The outcomes are natural looking. Yes, the change is subtle, but it can make a major difference for your overall looks.
