Drooping Nasal Tip – San Diego Rhinoplasty

Published on September 6, 2013

Drooping Nasal TipDo you have a drooping nasal tip? There are a wide variety of nasal malformations, many of which most people would not be able to differentiate between.

Also called a hook nose or a ptotic tip, a drooping nasal tip gives the nose a downwardly curved appearance. It can be corrected using rhinoplasty.

A drooping nasal tip can also affect a patient’s breathing by partially obstructing airflow through the nostrils. Corrective rhinoplasty is also known as functional rhinoplasty, since it improves the functionality of the nose. Because the procedure is not simply cosmetic in nature, there is a greater chance that your insurance company will provide coverage.

If you have a drooping nasal tip and feel like you want to get a corrective rhinoplasty procedure, speak with Dr. Mark Mofid, a board-certified plastic surgeon. To arrange a consultation with Dr. Mofid, contact us today and set up an appointment.
