I am a 29-year-old man with a pointy, triangular nose. I have been saving money for a nose job for many years and I would like to be positively sure that a nose job can help me before undergoing surgery. I cannot afford a revision. How can a nose job make a nose less pointy?
A nose job can improve the shape of a pointy nasal tip. The success of the surgery depends heavily on the skill of the surgeon you choose. Find a rhinoplasty surgeon who has a lot of experience performing work on the tip of the nose. Specific techniques can be used to reshape the tip with your own natural tissue and cartilage, which will lead to a natural result. Cartilage grafts are preferable over synthetic grafts. In most cases, no artificial material is needed to reshape the nasal tip. When performed by skilled surgeon, rhinoplasty can create a rounder nasal tip.
To give you the best advice, I would really need to see photographs and/or perform an examination. Every individual is unique.
