Why Is the Tip of My Nose So Round?

Published on July 7, 2017

You don’t have control over the way your nose will develop as you age. For many people, the natural shape of their nose can be a major source of embarrassment and can cause self-confidence issues. One of the most common nasal issues that leads people to rhinoplasty is a bulbous nasal tip.

A bulbous nasal tip can form because of two primary reasons. Many people have thick nasal skin. This is more common in non-Caucasian people. The thick skin gives the tip a rounded appearance.

If the skin is not the issue, the shape of the cartilage in the nasal tip may be the cause. Nasal cartilage that is wide or convex in shape creates a bulbous nasal tip.

If you want a nose you feel comfortable with, contact Paramount Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation. Dr. Keith Jeffords is a board-certified plastic surgeon who uses his technical and artistic skill to deliver natural-looking results.
