What Kinds of Refinement Rhinoplasty Are There?

Refinement Rhinoplasty is one of the most common forms of rhinoplasty that allows Dr. Buonassisi to reshape or refine the size and shape of the nose.

There are several ways to refine the look of the nose, depending on the specifics of each patient’s nasal and facial anatomy. Typical refinement techniques include:

  • Hump Reduction: to reduce the size and shape of dorsal hump or bump on the nose
  • Tip refinement: to make a bulbous or bulky tip look more refined and sophisticated
  • Tip rotation: to create a more attractive angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip, either but rotating or de rotating it
  • Augmentation or projection: to create a more prominent bridge or project/define the tip area, often but not always in Asian patients
  • Alar base reduction: to narrow the nostrils

In the video below, Dr. Buonassisi talks to us about the details and specifics of a tip refinement rhinoplasty surgery, which is performed specifically to make the tip of the nose appear more refined and less-bulbous or bulky.
