In tip plasty, changes are made only in the cartilage and soft tissues at the tip of the nose. It is the procedure performed to correct the deformity of the nasal tip (asymmetry, largeness, droopiness, pinched nasal tip deformity) only where the nasal bone structure is normal.
It can be performed with the closed or open technique. No bruising occurs since no intervention is performed on the bone. A very slight swelling may occur. There is usually no need to stay in the hospital.
