What is Tip Plasty In Korea?

Customized Tip Plasty for your face

A defined nose makes your face look more beautiful and it makes you look younger than your actual age. An upturned nose, a droopy nose, or a bulbous nose can be corrected through tip plasty. JW Plastic Surgery creates a beautiful and natural-looking nose with symmetrical nostrils and an alar base, this won’t droop, even after a long period of time.

To design a beautiful nose tip which matches the shape of your face, we make an accurate and in depth diagnosis by analyzing the shape, angle, length, and height of your nose. It is very likely that you will see satisfactory results by only doing tip plasty, but in many cases, this can also be achieved with rhinoplasty, this will create a more natural nose shape.

Autologous can make your nose tip more natural!

By doing the autologous technique at JW Plastic Surgery Center, this will reduce the possibility of postoperative inflammation or a thinning nose tip and makes your nose tip move more naturally.

JW’s Know-How for Tip Plasty!

No Drooping Overtime

Your nose tip will not droop, even after a long period of time but keep its beautiful shape.

Customized Surgery for your Face

If autologous cannot be performed, donated costal cartilage or artificial dermis will be used, instead of hard foreign materials.

Using Fascia if Necessary

If necessary, the autologous cartilage will be wrapped into the fascia to form a natural nose tip.

Safe Surgery using Autologous Cartilage

We perform safe tip plasty using ear cartilage, nasal septal cartilage, or costal cartilage, instead of using implants.

Minimized Rejection Reactions and Side Effects

We can make adjustments any nose tip such as bulbous nose, upturned nose, or droopy nose and turn it into a beautiful nose tip by correcting the height, angle, and shape of the tip.


#1 | Re-positioning of Alar Cartilage

We can raise the height of a nose tip, lengthen or shorten the nose, or reduce the volume of the tip of the nose by rearranging the alar cartilage.

#2 | Autologous Cartilage Implantation

This procedure corrects the shape of a nose tip using nasal septal cartilage, rib cartilage, or costal cartilage. Autologous cartilage may be implanted into the nasal bridge to support the nose tip. Alternatively, the nasal septum may be extended.

#3 | Dermis Implantation

In order to prevent the alar cartilage from being seen, we create a natural-looking nose tip by implanting autologous dermis or artificial dermis into a nose tip.

#4 | Combined Method

The above procedures may be combined and performed at the same time.

#5 | Rein-shaped columellar strut graft

The nose of Asian people are generally smaller, and their nasal tip skin is thicker than those of Westerners. Moreover, in the Asian nose, the tip projection is weak, and the tip-defining point is obtuse.

Structural supporting grafts, such as the columellar strut graft or septal extension graft, should be used for most Asian people to obtain sufficient nasal tip projection.
