Fat nose tip. Is there anything I can do to narrow it?

Q: I’d like to know what methods are available to me that don’t require surgery; I’m open to lasers and fillers. I have a fat nose tip; I was wondering if there’s anything I can do to narrow it? I have pores on my nose and I break out a little.

A: A safe and effective way of refining the tip of your nose is with surgical rhinoplasty.  The width of the tip of your nose is caused by a combination of the thickness of your skin, and the size and shape of your tip cartilage.  Without improving the shape and size of your underlying tip cartilage it will be difficult to achieve significant refinement.
