The goal of rhinoplasty surgery is to make sure the results look natural and balance with the nose. An experienced surgeon carefully assesses the nose to achieve this result.
Performing just a tip platy should not make the tip of the nose look unnatural or fake, as long as his then performed properly and you've healed quite well.
Natural rhinoplasties occur as a result of good judgment and successful execution.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds
of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the
plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a
sense of who can deliver the results.

Hi. You have several questions here, so I'll give a short answer for each. As for the tip of your nose, if you and your doctor determine that it can be improved, surgery should make it look more refined, not as if you've had surgery. Nasal asymmetry is possible after surgery because of swelling, contraction forces, cartilage grafting, or many other possibilities. These risks and potential solutions should be discussed at your consultation. If you want a similar nose to the one that you have, that should be possible and of course needs to be discussed in your consultation. Yes, I would recommend using your nose as the standard from which changes might be made, not a photo of a different nose. Good. luck.
Complications can occur with any operation. Tha said most operations on the nose lead to very pleasant results in qualified hands. I would find a board certified PS in your area with lots of exxperience and then have him take your photo digitally and then alter it with your input. That way you both will have the same final result in mind going into surgery and the surgeon will be able to inform you what is and what is not possible.
