If I just want to upturn the tip and all I need is a graft to add support to tip, is there less chance for complicatoins (crooked tip, uneven nostrils) vs. having to reshape tip and lessen the size through a full rhinoplasty?

I dont want to change the shape or size of tip only want to rotate the tip upwards. I've heard some horror stories of unwanted complications from others who did a full rhinoplasty when they just wanted to change a small fraction.


Anyone knows if Tip plasty is less complicated than rhinoplasty, also how high is the chance for complications in tip plasty in this case?

Hi Roseen,

Rhinoplasty is the most individually customized operation where you can determine just what bothers you, and how much - you can discuss and plan with the plastic surgeon on what surgical options (and potential complications) may need to be done and accepted.

You might be able to just go with a tip procedure depending on your nose, as a more involved procedure may be needed. That said, if a tip plasty procedure is all that you want - by all means, ask your surgeon if your desired results can be done with just that! Smile

It sounds like you should definitely get just a tip plasty. Personally, I've never heard bad stories about tip plastic. It is a much less complicated than a full rhinoplasty so I would assume that there would be less complications involved
