Broad nasal tip: Increase in width of the nasal tip.

Nasal tip width is assessed at the anterior junction of the alae and the tip. This is easier in persons with a somewhat squared shape of the nasal tip. This may be best viewed from the inferior aspect of the nose. No objective measures are available. See Bulbous nose for a related term.2
