PHOTO GALLERY – Artistic Nasal Tip Contouring Rhinoplasty La Jolla


Case #17.

This patient wanted a rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of her nose. She wanted a straighter, slimmer bridge with a more defined contour. She also wanted to refine her nasal tip because she did not like its round shape. It was important to her to achieve natural-looking results that did not look overly pinched and narrowed.

Subtle changes to this patient’s nasal bridge and tip enhanced the overall appearance of her nose and improved the harmony of her nose with her other beautiful facial features. Dr. Kolstad’s used expert contouring techniques to add subtle definition to her nasal bridge and create a straighter, more feminine slope. He always takes a conservative approach when reshaping round nasal tips to create a slim, refined tip that matches the patient’s nose and face without looking overdone.
