The shape of the tip of your nose plays a major role in how balanced your nose looks. Some people may have a nose that is bulbous and rounded in appearance. This aesthetic issue causes the tip of the nose to look too large when compared to the bridge and nostrils of the nose.

In order to refine a bulbous nasal tip, the nasal cartilage will need to be reshaped. A bulbous nasal tip is typically the result of having nasal cartilage that is too wide or convex in shape. Some of the nasal cartilage may be removed, but if too much is removed, the structure of your nose will lose its integrity. The main focus will be reshaping the cartilage into a more prominent point.
