Nose Tip Surgery Before and After Photos
I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over ten years and had a handful of consultations with other cosmetic surgeons by the time I walked into Dr. Kulbersh’s office at CFP. After my consultation I finally felt comfortable enough to schedule the procedure! Dr. Kulbersh took the time to truly understand what I wanted and kept me informed every step of the way. The facility is beautiful and clean. And the staff is amiable and professional. I underwent surgery in November and have had 2 or 3 follow-up appointments since. I would absolutely recommend CFP to anyone.

Nose tip reshaping or reduction treats the following concerns:
- Bulbous tip
- Wide tip
- Droopy tip
- Asymmetrical tip
- Lack of tip definition or tip projection
- Upturned tip
- Unsatisfactory results from a previous rhinoplasty
Dr. Kulbersh received extensive training from renowned facial plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Board-certified in head and neck surgery and fellowship-trained in facial plastic surgery, his extensive training and expertise ensure his patients receive excellent rhinoplasty and tip plasty surgery results. Dr. Kulbersh never uses a one-size-fits-all approach to his surgical procedures but designs customized procedure plans suited to his patients’ unique needs, aesthetic goals, and ethnicity.
Dr. Kulbersh performs all surgeries in his own private Fairview Surgical Suites, an accredited center that exclusively caters to the practice’s advanced cosmetic procedures. After surgery, patients have the option of spending some of their recovery time at our Fairview Recovery Retreat, which provides a 5-star luxury environment with round-the-clock nursing care.
Ideal candidates for nasal tip plasty have a flat, drooping, or bulbous nose tip, wide nasal wings, or issues with their nose tip cartilage.
Those who desire to make a subtle improvement to their nose without drastically altering their nasal shape will benefit from a nose tip job procedure.
Frequently asked questions
Dr. Kulbersh might use either an open or closed technique for nasal tip shaping. For the open technique, he makes a small incision in the columella, which is the tissue that separates the nostrils. Through the incision, he reshapes the nasal tip by manipulating tissue, bone, or cartilage. The open approach is typically performed when the patient requires more extensive nasal sculpting.
A closed approach involves making an incision inside the nostrils. This technique is often used for minor adjustments to the nose. Since all incisions are confined to the inside of the nostrils, there is no visible scarring.
Tip plasty is a shorter procedure than traditional full rhinoplasty. Depending on the patient’s case, it will take Dr. Kulbersh an hour or so to complete the surgery.
In some cases, patients may benefit from a non-surgical rhinoplasty. During this procedure, our team of expert injectors place dermal fillers in precise areas to smooth out bumps, reshape or enhance the nasal tip and projection, and improve nasal symmetry. Our injection team includes Heather Bryant, PMPAS, PA-C, Amanda Piligian, PA-C, and Courtney Whitley, FNP-C. While non-surgical rhinoplasty can already provide a satisfying outcome, only surgery can produce permanent results.
Tip plasty recovery time is shorter compared to a full rhinoplasty. Most patients return to work or school in 1 week. Expect bruising and swelling in the days and weeks after surgery which should resolve naturally. Any pain and discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Strenuous physical activities must be avoided for at least 3 weeks, and the head must be kept elevated when sleeping.
Tip plasty is a quick procedure that is well tolerated by patients. Most patients will require Tylenol for pain control. Those who strictly adhere to Dr. Kulbersh’s nose tip plasty post-surgery aftercare instructions tend to have the smoothest and most comfortable recovery process.
Insurance does not cover surgeries that are performed for purely cosmetic reasons. But if your tip plasty is required to address breathing and functional issues, a portion of the surgery may be covered by your insurance policy. Check with your provider before undergoing surgery to verify coverage eligibility.
