‘Barbie-line’ Rhinoplasty
Tip-Toc Surgery
Alar Reduction
Tip-Toc Surgery
  You meet friends after the surgery.

They ask you whether you had a plastic surgery, instead
of saying “you look pretty.”

If that’s the last thing you want to hear, this is what you
should do.
Tip-Toc surgery
Tip-Toc is highly recommended to those who want to enhance appearance without others noticing
On top of lifting the nasal dorsum, which is the most popular rhinoplasty, Tip-Toc offers alar resection, adjustment of nasal tip, columella so that you can be more sophisticated and prettier.
Columellar lifting
Columella is a pillar between nostrils. If the columella is long, your nose may appear to be arrow shaped, or make you look unsophisticated and relatively old.
Your nose makes you neat and sexy if you have long or drooped columella lifted.

Surgical procedures
  • Remove mucosa and a cartilage inside from nasal strut.
  • Pull nose cartilage up and suture at nasal septum.
  • The height of nose tip and how much columellar is lifted can be adjusted, and are determined by symmetry, and personal preference.
  • Sutures will be removed 5- 6 days after the surgery
  • You will notice enhanced appearance after 1 week.
  • You may notice gradual changes in the appearance in a few weeks.
Nasal tip surgery
You have a round nose
Your nasal tips are either large or bulbous.
Your nasal tip is large and round and may make you appear to be clumsy and masculine.
Trimming blunt nose to fit with nose height and width completes your nose. You will then look more feminine and lovelier.

Surgical procedures
  • Modify the cartilages in your nose tip. Trim it as if carving.
  • If there is gap between each nose cartilage, bind them.
  • Remove some fat under nose tip if your skin is rather thick.
  • Autologous cartilage will be grafted if necessary
  • Sutures will be removed 5 to 6 days after surgery
  • You will notice enhanced appearance after 1-2 weeks.
  • You may notice gradual changes in the appearance in a few weeks.
  • Swellings can last longer if you have a very rounded nose
Alar reduction
You have a round and broad nose.
Some people have a round and broad nose which make them boorish.
Often, ill- tempered characters in fairy tales have this nose.
Alar trimming alters your nose so that you appear to be sharp and sophisticated.

Surgical procedures
  • Narrow the nostrils after a wedge-shaped skin is removed from the alar.
  • Bind the alars together under the columellar if necessary.
  • Sutures will be removed 6 days after surgery
  • You will notice enhanced appearance after 1-2 weeks.
  • You may notice gradual changes in the appearance in a few weeks.
  • Swelling may last longer if you have a round nose.
Alar enlargement
Some people’s nostrils are visible or their noses appear to be tight when they laugh because their noses are rather skinny.
Nose determines one’s fortune in physiognomy. One is prognosticated to be economically less fortunate if his nostrils are visible or his nose appears to be tight and skinny. One may appear to be unreliable if he has this nose.
Alar enlargement is a surgery that fills small alar by enlarging it.

Surgical procedures
  • Cartilage and skin are taken from your ear and will be grafted
  • Small autologous cartilage is grafted around nostrils if your alar is not too small.
  • Either graft autologous cartilage at the tip of nose tip cartilage or push it forward.
  • Cartilage of ear will be extracted and grafted around alar if a patient has a skinny nose.
  • Sutures will be removed 6 days after surgery
  • You will notice enhanced appearance after 1-2 weeks.
  • If ear cartilage is grafted with skin, a scab may form in a nose for a month.
