I am 17 years old, and my nose has a bulbous tip and a wide bridge.

I was just wondering about the type of rhinoplasty I could have done and the average cost of the surgery.


From your description, the surgery would need to involve reshaping of the cartilage of the nasal tip as well as resetting and reshaping of the nasal bones in the bridge of the nose to produce narrowing.

The characteristics of wide nasal tips can include thick or thin soft tissue envelope, and he would be necessary to evaluate at the time of the consultation your specific situation and aspirations for change. This allows an assessment of what is achievable and what is the type of surgery most likely to achieve it.

In general terms also I prefer to carry out cosmetic rhinoplasty interventions after the age of 18.
