I know that the operation only on nose tip proceeds very rarely and some surgeons keep telling that by changing only the tip it's almost impossible to get desired aesthetic results. Is there anyone who's proceeded a rhinoplasty only on the nose tip? I like my nose bridge, it's quite thin and beautiful but the tip is not symmetric. I want to narrow a bit alar and do something with cartilage. Can anyone share experience with operation exactly on the tip? Planning a trip to Seoul and interested in absolutely everything about the clinics, surgeons, costs, rehabilitation.

I think nose is a single whole and you can't rebuild the foundation without destroying the roof. My dad proceeded collective rhino and the tip was also involved. It's better to stay at home the first 3-4 days after the surgery and keep your head higher, avoid physical activities and sleep only on your back during the first month. It's also better to avoid cold or hot shower, swimming pools and saunas. And my dad was also advised to avoid stressful situations for quicker rehabilitation. He could return to his daily life after 2 weeks. His swollen tip, however, remained for quite a while and was potato-shaped for a bit more than 3 weeks, so the first results we could notice only a month after. He also got some post-op treatments in the clinic, guess it assisted the recovery but I do believe it's individual. We went to Regen plastic surgery 6 months ago and the surgeon was Dr.Lee and if you need more details, I think it's better to contact the clinic directly.

I'm thinking of JK, Opera, Regen and Grand but haven't contacted anyone yet. I decided it's better to collect all the information and real reviews first. How did you chose the clinic? Has you father considered other places and does he like the result? I'm also interested what the process and the pain were like and I've heard that breathing becomes worse and the sense of smell disappears and even snoring occurs in some cases after the procedure.

I got a rhino on my hump nose but after the operation the tip sank and now I'm planning a revision to lift it. No one warned me about such consequences and now I'm looking forward when the time for the next surgery pasts and I finally got my perfect nose. I've also heard a lot of positive about Regen and its surgeons and this time want to contact them as well. I advise you to thoroughly chose the surgeon and to clarify all the aspects of your operation and desired results, better to require before and after pics of ex-patients who had similar to your situations.

I'm not sure why but my dad kept wanting to go to Regen because I think my dad's friend was like 100% go to there. But I wanted to go other places as well so we agreed to go to a few places. He goes to Seoul quite often and knew about clinics there. So we made a list of desired places, searched for the information and talked to patients. Finally got online consultations and have appointed meetings with only 2 clinics. In September last year we went to Seoul. Regen was the first place we visited, as it was located closer to Gangnam station and our hotel, then we went to JK. In my point of view, the service in both clinics was professional, but my dad is a bit picky so he liked Dr.Lee from Regen more. He said that during the consultation he found Dr.Lee more experienced, professional and attentive to details. Since the visiting day was reserved beforehand, he could proceed the surgery the same day and he also got some discount which was surprisingly pleasant :). The operation lasted about 2 hours, all that time I was waiting there, wasn't allowed to go into the recovery room though, so I was sitting in the waiting lobby. When my father woke up, I was allowed to see him, he didn't complain about the pain and the operation went quite good, but Dr.Lee advised him to stay overnight. The next morning when I came to pick him up, he looked tired. He said that couldn't sleep the whole night because of breathing disability and it lasted for the whole week. He also lost the sense of smell for a couple of days but as soon as stitches were removed, everything became as it was before. I think snoring appears as a kind of a side effect of an unsuccessful operation. Hopefully everything went well for us.

For how long the tip is being dropped? I know that the result can be judged only after some time and how dramatically are you planning to change it now?

The tip began to drop by the end of 4th month and now it's been already a year. I think it happened because the cartilage has been cut too much. During the consultation, the surgeon asked about the tip and suggested to change it a bit, but I wasn't expecting the result I'm currently facing. can you please share some before and after pics of your dad?

Here are the pics before and 10 days after, all I have for now. As far as I know, the tip sank in case of surgeon's wrong calculations, did you make a computer modelling to avoid this kind of side effects?

Yes, the doctor made a modelling and I actually liked it, but after the surgery he said that modelling is not a 100% result, it's just a direction for a surgeon and that in most cases only 30% matches the result. In my case it's actually happened, I can't say that I 100% dissatisfied, I just want to lift a tip a bit and that's all. Has your father inserted implants into his nose bridge? And the result are quite good, even though the pic was taken only 10 days after. My rehabilitation was awful, terrible pain and pressure, I also got a headache for 4 or 5 days after the operation, the surgeon said it was a side effect of anesthesia. I couldn't go out for 2 weeks because of edemas under eyes and the whole face was sooooo swollen! Glad your dad's nose job has been proceeded easily.

If you said that in general you like your nose, why do you need to change it? The main difference between changing only the tip and classic rhino is that the tip improvement procedure can't be standard so it's quite complicated. Haven't you thought of trying non-incision methods first? There are some risks, you know it from my experience, so I think it's better to make a mock change to see if it really suits you.

He got a 4mm implant and the tip was slightly reduced as well as alar. Sorry to hear that you had to endure so many pain. Yes, his rehabilitation was quite easy, he didn't have any edemas and the swelling was only in nose area. I think that rehabilitation depends on the patient's immune system and post-op care, maybe you should got some post-op treatments for getting rid of edemas and swelling faster? For my dad the most difficult period was the first week and by the time we came back home he could fully recover.

He doesn't mind of sharing his experience. He is not using sns though, but not hiding that proceeded an operation.

Was your dad's surgery covered by the insurance and how about scars? Are they visible? And I've also heard that the nose becomes more vulnerable after rhinoplasty, isn't it?
