Do you have what is sometimes described as a “lightbulb” nose, otherwise known as a bulbous tip? As the central feature of the human face, your nose plays a pivotal role in complementing your entire appearance. In some cases, a bulbous tip can impact your overall profile, affecting your facial symmetry, proportions, and balance.

At Eos Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills, Dr. Nima offers bulbous tip rhinoplasty as a tailored solution for defining and sculpting your nose. Find out more about what causes a bulbous nasal tip, how this procedure can correct it, what recovery looks like, and more.

What Is Bulbous Tip Rhinoplasty?

Also known as bulbous nose rhinoplasty, this is a specialized type of rhinoplasty that focuses on refining the appearance of a bulbous or rounded nasal tip. It often involves reducing or modifying excess cartilage, applying suture techniques, removing excess tissue, and using cartilage grafts to create a more defined nasal tip.

What Causes a Bulbous Nose Tip?

Generally, bulbous nose tips are caused by one or a combination of the following: thick nasal skin, enlarged lateral cartilage, convex cartilage (i.e, the cartilage curves outward), and prominent bone structure. These are all in relation to genetics.

In some cases, medical conditions, like rosacea, can cause the nose to enlarge and become red, bumpy, and bulbous. This typically occurs when rosacea is mismanaged.

How Can Rhinoplasty Fix a Bulbous Tip?

At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima uses several rhinoplasty techniques to address and correct a bulbous tip, including cartilage reshaping, tip reduction, suturing, septal cartilage grafting, and alar base reduction (i.e., reducing nostril size). Which technique is right for you will depend on several factors, such as your individual circumstances, unique anatomical features, and aesthetic goals.

Bulbous Rhinoplasty Process Explained

To ensure the best possible outcome, Dr. Nima employs a specific approach to all his rhinoplasty procedures. Here is what you can expect when choosing Eos Rejuvenation for your bulbous rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.

The Consultation

An initial consultation is the first step to a successful bulbous rhinoplasty procedure.

How To Prepare

Our team will send you a detailed list of pre-op instructions and guidelines to follow in preparation for your bulbous nose rhinoplasty at Eos Rejuvenation.

On the Day of Surgery

Your surgery will occur at the state-of-the-art Eos Rejuvenation outpatient surgery center, where you will be prepped and put under general anesthesia. Once you are asleep, Dr. Nima will perform an open or closed rhinoplasty.

In general, Dr. Nima recommends open rhinoplasty for patients correcting a bulbous nose, as this technique offers unmatched accessibility and enhanced precision. It involves making a small external incision and lifting the skin to reveal your nasal bone and cartilage, which Dr. Nima will sculpt and contour based on your unique treatment plan.

What You Can Expect During Recovery

Once your surgery is complete and Dr. Nima has closed your incisions, you will be moved to our comfortable recovery room until the anesthesia wears off, and you can be sent home for recovery. During your bulbous tip rhinoplasty recovery, it is normal to experience swelling, bruising, discomfort, and minor bleeding. While swelling may last several weeks, the other side effects should subside within the first week or two following surgery.
