Q&A: Can you help me decide if I should get a nose job?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

Hi, I wanted to get a nose job because I have a small bump on the bridge but the tip is long too, I want to fix just the bump but I don't know if I should get work done on the tip too and how much it would cost

The cost to repair the bump on the bridge of your nose and the tip is no different than just repairing the bump.   Since there is no cost difference it would be wise to do them both at the same time.  An approximate fee for this procedure is from $5000.00 to $8000.00.  We offer complimentary consultations and would be happy to meet with you to discuss your options. On the day of your consult you will receive a quote for the procedure that interests you.

Hi Pamela thanks for the question.
 
If you mainly want the bump addressed, it is usually fine to do that as most of the time the tip will remain in balance.   If it looks like the tip would not be in balance when the bump is reduced, then it is okay to do some minor tip work to balance it.  This can be more easily evaluated in person or perhaps with photos.  Feel free to contact my office anytime at 877-301-2080.
