Many patients schedule an appointment with Dr. Slupchynskyj seeking to correct their bulbous nose. Some patients mention that the tip of their nose lacks definition or support; others would prefer that their nasal tip be enhanced. These descriptions all signify the structural differences that cause a bulbous nose. Most common in African-American, Asian and Hispanic patients, but found in all ethnicities, the right surgeon can successfully correct a bulbous nose.
Why is the bulbous nose shape aesthetically undesirable for certain individuals? In order to answer these questions, we need to evaluate facial balance and symmetry. From the frontal view of the face, the nose should have 2 divergent, concave lines that extend from the medial brow to the nasal tip (similar an hourglass shape). This is known as the brow-tip aesthetic line. Extreme fullness in the nasal tip interrupts the balance of this line.
