Bulbous Nose

The nose is a defining facial feature which contributes to our distinctive look. When that defining characteristic becomes a distracting focus (for the wrong reasons), we may be left with a desire to reshape or refine a bulbous nose.

Visible Effects

The shape and size of the nose can effect how we see ourselves and how we are seen by others. In the case of a bulbous nose, we may feel self-conscious of how the proportion of our nose effects our facial harmony making us less eager to be in the public eye.

Underlying Causes

Facial features are largely determined by heredity however, in some cases, injury, rosacea and aging can alter the shape and size of our nose. In the case of aging, soft tissue (skin, muscle and fat) support weakens and bones recede, leading to a drooping nose tip and widening bridge which makes the nose appear larger. Where with Phymatous Rosacea, vessel congestion and hypertrophy of sebaceous glands and connective tissue contribute to an enlarged nose.


As a centre for advanced skincare, aesthetic dermatology and facial plastic surgery, Cutis is able to treat the bulbous nose using a variety of modalities. In the case of Phymatous Rosacea, addressing the Rosacea first is key. Certain systemic medications reduce vessel congestion and/or the use of BBL or Nd:YAG can help treat symptoms of rosacea, then Rhinoplasty may be an option. Rhinoplasty is a common surgical procedure, also referred to as "nose reshaping" or a "nose job," which reforms the size and contours of the nose. In the case of the aging nose, dermal filler techniques offer a non-invasive remedy for concerns relating to nose re-shaping and nasal-tip ptosis. Improved facial harmony and confidence are easier than ever to achieve. Schedule a consultation with us today.
