Japanese term or phrase: 鼻の切り
Dear ProZ members,

does 鼻の切り stands for "a side of the nose" or "the tip of the nose" in Japanese?

Thank you very much!

Explanation:
Besides the link and the common usages of 切り, Google images of unsightly noses and before-and-after comparisons suggest it's related to surgically changing the shape of the nose for cosmetic purposes.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Sorry for the delay in answering. Unfortunately, this can't be the case, ad the original sentence talks about "tapping a baby's 鼻の切り with the finger". Sorry for not quoting it before. Other ideas? Thank you very much!
