What is a tip-plasty compared to rhinoplasty?
Tip plasty or tip rhinoplasty is basically rhinoplasty of the nasal tip. Anytime you alter the nose, its “rhinoplasty.” Some surgeons try to be cute about it to minimize it but it is what it is – a rhinoplasty! For example, a few patients only require alar base reduction or nostril narrowing. You can call it alarplasty but it is again essentially a rhinoplasty limited to the nostril width only.
