Question

My concern is about my excessive tip length, apart from rotation, can it really be decreased by surgery?

The tip which is not supported by the bone can be shortened and if yes how will you do that?

Answer

In rhinoplasty terminology the nasal tip length refers to the vertical dimension and projection to the horizontal one (how far the nose protrudes from the face).

Correction of the excessive length in my practice involves stabilising the tip of the nose with the assistance of a cartilage graft to prevent it from rotating further down.

In some instances, a parallel shortening is required, which does not involve rotation.
