Many materials are available for an augmentation such as this, including artificial materials and even the patient's own cartilage.  On this patient I used a material that is soft and almost cloth-like, because soft materials don't show a sharp edge under the skin like grafted cartilage can, and the softer materials can sometimes be shaped more precisely.

Questioner: What Can Be Done to Improve the Appearance of my Nose? (Photos Provided)
I dislike the flat, boxy tip of my nose and the fact that it seems to have very defined edges like a cube. I'm wondering if it's possible to have the part overhanging my septum partly removed and reshaped, making the septum appear thinner and the tip rounder. I also wonder if it's possible to have the boxy edges literally shaved off. How possible would it be for my nose to be shaped more like Winona Ryder's, pointier, more graceful nose? Thank you for your help.
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Need larger photos!

It does appear from the photos that your tip can be improved. Your photos, however, are far too small for a surgeon to see good detail. Post larger ones, and I'd be happy to make a morph showing what you could look like with a good rhinoplasty. Click the "Web reference" link for a before and after of a patient who had a nose perhaps similar in some features to yours.
