There is a fine art form to Rhinoplasty procedures. All of the parts work together and if the tip is to be refined, even slightly, the nasal dorsum may likely need to be tweaked and adjusted ever so slightly. One area may require the majority of the work but the focus is on the overall facial harmony. However, if after careful evaluation by your facial plastic surgeon, you both decide it’s just the tip, then a tip-plasty is a great option than can even be performed under local anesthesia.
