Pinched Nasal Tip – Secondary Rhinoplasty San Diego

Published on January 17, 2014

Pinched Nasal TipIs the tip of your nose much narrower than it should be? This is known as a pinched nasal tip malformation. Because it’s out of proportion with the rest of nose, it can appear abnormal and sharp. The area can be expanded with the help of rhinoplasty surgery.

Pinched nasal tip rhinoplasty is typically revision rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty. When a previous surgeon has taken too much cartilage from the inside of the nasal tip, this leaves the area structurally unsound. If the cartilages in the tip have been weakened and cannot support the nostril rims, the pinched nasal tip deformation may occur.
