The ultimate guide to fixing your bulbous nose
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. But while you can detect a whole host of emotions by looking at someone’s eyes, those with an enlarged, misshapen, or bulbous nose know all too well how other features can detract from even the most beautiful of eyes. A bulbous nose or nasal tip is a very common reason people seek nose job surgery. If you want to improve the appearance of your nose or have health issues such as breathing difficulties due to its shape, cosmetic rhinoplasty or nose job surgery may be for you. Its purpose is to improve the aesthetic, balance, and functionality of your nose!
People with excessively large noses, dominant bridge bumps, bridge scoops, long, short, or crooked noses, wide nostrils, or bulbous tips are all potential candidates for cosmetic rhinoplasty. If you have a clean bill of health, realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure, you are an even stronger candidate. Dr. Mulholland’s training in both Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat, and Head & Neck Oncology, combined with over 20 years of rhinoplasty experience make him one of Canada’s most sought after nose job surgeons. Dr. Mulholland will use high tech computer software to perform computer simulated surgery and review the anticipated range of improvements that you are likely to achieve. This “try before you buy” approach is instrumental in fostering realistic expectations for your rhinoplasty, which is critical before undergoing surgery.
Bulbous tip rhinoplasty options
In an external rhinoplasty, a small incision is made at the base of the nose and the nasal skin is lifted over the cartilage and bone so the nose can be structurally changed with excellent long-term results. In a closed rhinoplasty, also known as an internal or endonasal rhinoplasty, the incisions are placed entirely inside the nose and nostrils, which is well-suited to dorsal bridge reductions and some nasal tip and airway concerns. Dr. Mulholland will thoroughly assess you pre-surgery and recommend the course of action best suited to your nose and your goals!
The “five-minute nose job”
Nowadays, traditional rhinoplasty is often understood as being one of the most invasive facial plastic surgeries, with an extended recovery time. Thanks to advanced innovation, the injection rhinoplasty or “five-minute nose job” can offer similar results with only a needle, depending on your particular case. It can be done right in our Toronto office without any need for anesthesia, in under 30 minutes. Dr. Mulholland has seen a variety of successes with this method, for bulbous tips as well as for many other types of corrections. Results last one to two years, and the cost for an injection rhinoplasty starts at $1500.
