Schedule A Consultation

A droopy nasal tip, medically known as tip ptosis, refers to the downward slant of the nasal tip. It can occur naturally or develop over time.


  • Aging: As we age, the skin and supporting structures of the nose weaken, which can cause the tip to droop.
  • Genetics: The shape and structure of the nose are inherited, and some people are naturally predisposed to having a droopy tip.
  • Previous rhinoplasty: Sometimes, a previous nose job can unintentionally lead to a droopy tip if too much cartilage or tissue is removed from the tip.


While not medically concerning, a droopy tip can be addressed cosmetically:

  • Rhinoplasty: During a rhinoplasty, the surgeon can reshape the tip cartilage and surrounding tissues to create a more lifted and supported appearance.
  • Non-surgical rhinoplasty (fillers): In some mild cases, injectable fillers can be used to add volume and definition to the tip, providing a subtle lifting effect.


Please consult a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to discuss your concerns and explore treatment options.
