Theo dõi Gangwhoo trên

Red nose tip after rhinoplasty (also known as redness of the nose tip) is one of the most common complications after rhinoplasty. There are various causes and treatments for this complication.


You can recognize red nose tip after rhinoplasty based on the following signs:

  • The nose is still swollen and has bruises.
  • The nose tip skin is tightened.
  • The nose tip is swollen and red.


1. How long does it heal?

After rhinoplasty, a red nose tip is one of the very normal symptoms. It is because the nose shape suddenly rises rapidly, making the skin in the nose area not yet elastic to fit the nose, causing it to get red. Or it may be because the doctor uses too much force, exerting a lot of pressure on the surrounding soft tissues.

However, this condition usually appears in the first days after surgery (about 8-10 days) and then gradually subsides. Therefore, you don’t need to worry. And if it takes too long without improvement, it is only possible that your nose shape has encountered complications.

2. Complications

In some cases, after the first 1-2 years of rhinoplasty, the red nose tip will appear, or you can even touch the cartilage of the nose bridge. The cause of this condition is due to using poor quality and hard cartilage, creating friction with the skin at the nose tip, causing skin erosion.

In case the skin of the nose is too thin that has an over-correction, it will also cause the nose tip of the nose to be red or even expose the filler material to the outside.

3. Infection

If you do not follow the doctor’s instructions on how to do proper hygiene and take care of your nose, you may experience prolonged infection and swelling. Not to mention, if the nose is not cleaned well, it is easy to get red pimples and hidden acne at the nose tip.

In particular, those who undergo structural rhinoplasty that involves a bone reconstruction will encounter a fluid discharge complication. If the fluid is not drained out, it will make the nose swollen and red for a long time.


A red nose tip after rhinoplasty due to many other reasons such as poor-quality domestic facility, operating rooms are not thoroughly sterile, old equipment, inexperienced doctors. These causes will lead to complications such as red nose tip or dropped nose bridge. This will cause a loss of confidence in many people and want to find the most optimal method to fix the nose.

To be able to overcome the situation of rhinoplasty with a red nose tip, the best solutions are as follows:

  • If the nose after rhinoplasty is red and dropped, it is necessary to perform a re-surgery to remove the old cartilage and place the new one (preferably soft cartilage). The doctor will implant autologous cartilage from the customer’s body (ear cartilage, septum cartilage, rib cartilage, …) to coat the nose tip. Depending on the specific case, the doctor can implant right after removing the old cartilage or wait 4-6 months before doing so.
  • If the nose is crooked, it is necessary to perform surgery to dissect parts of the nose tip, nose bridge, and nose columella to trim the cartilage to fit the nose structure.
  • If the tip of the nose is pointed, it is necessary to use autologous cartilage and soft cartilage to coat the nose tip, this is called a cartilage rhinoplasty technique.
  • If the nose columella is crooked or the nostrils are asymmetrical, it is necessary to carry out rhinoplasty surgery to correct the nose columella or nose wings.
