Tip-plasty can be performed via both an open and closed approach, both under general anaesthetic, however due to increased visibility and accessibility Dr Mooney favours the open approach.
As with traditional rhinoplasty, the open approach is accessed through a small incision made through the columella (in between the two nostrils). Nasal tip surgery generally involves various cartilage grafting and suturing techniques in order to sculpt the tip. For some rhinoplasty revision cases and minor nasal tip correction, Dr Mooney may choose to use a closed approach in which the tip is accessed via the nostrils with no incisions.
Patient may seek tip-plasty if they are unhappy with the tip beeing to: square, round, bulbous, narrow, wide, droopy, or crooked.
