Question: The tip of my nose slants downwards. I’m a 55-year-old male, can a rhinoplasty or nose job surgery lift it or will it just keep growing down regardless?

Answer: Without photos or an examination, it is impossible to determine the cause of the tip droop.  Sometimes it can be the result of a high septum and a dorsal bump. Other times, it can be the result of overactive muscles found between the upper lip and nose.  Once the proper diagnosis is made, plastic surgery can definitively correct the problem.
