Your goal for a thin aesthetic nose and profile may not be possible.  There are certain limitations in rhinoplasty, the thickness of your skin and quality of the underlying cartilage and bone.  You can look at features of noses that you like but it is most important to know that you can not put someone else's nose on you.

Make sure to get several opinions. The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a great place to start for rhinoplasty specialists in your area. Be discriminating and look at plenty of rhinoplasty photo examples.

We frequently do rhinoplasties on African American females. In fact, I'm doing 2 next week. You and your surgeon should clearly outline what will be done. The goal should be a natural, ethnic, improved appearance.

We do a large number of females who are African American who want aore refined look trying to make it in theovie business. The thick skin, wide nostrils, lack of tip projection must all be considered. Seek out an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who does natural looking noses.

This is a highly specialized rhinoplasty procedure. You will have to consult with several surgeons who perform this type of surgery. Look at as many photographs as they can provide and see if you like the results. If the majority of these are to your likening, then you have found your surgeon.  Also, talk to friends who have had this surgery successfully and are happy with results.  Good luck.
