Tip Plasty

Tip Plasty is a nasal surgical procedure to increase the aesthetic value of the nose, or it can be simply defined as a visually appealing nasal tip.  This surgery is performed exclusively for the nasal tip, and not for any other part of the nose viz. bridge, roof, cartilage or bones.

People having a fat nose, or simply a fat tip require corrections to elevate the nasal tip, so that it looks raised through a proper angle.


The benefits of Tip Plasty can be listed as –

  • Giving definition and a proper structure
  • Enhancing the overall look and feel of the nose and face
  • A surgical procedure that is short and not extensive by any means



Alarplasty is done for patients who have wide nostrils. The procedure involves the removal of a wedge tissue from the sides of the nostrils. The wedge base is situated at a level at the rims and pointed apex near the sides of the cheek groove. The removal amount depends on how wide the nostrils are to give a narrow look.


Once the procedure is done, the open area is sutured, there are two ways this can be done, viz. Weir Incision and Inside the nose incision.

The benefits of Alarplasty include –

  • Immediate visibility of results
  • Smaller nose or nostrils
  • Symmetrical nose structure
  • Balanced face



Nasal osteotomy is done to remove a greater nasal dorsum or hump removal and a wide nasal base. This procedure also removes an open roof deformity after the dorsal hump surgery is done.  An osteotomy in Rhinoplasty can also widen a narrow pyramid or straighten a deviated septum.
