I feel that from the side profile it looks too up-turned/pixie like and instead of a slope that I have I want it too look straight without it looking 'flicked up'. Looks quite bulbous from the tip and also one nostril looks unequal to the other. I want my nose to look straight from the side and also thinner from the front. My nostrils also look too large in my opinion. I have low self-esteem and confidence because of the way my nose looks.

Rhinoplasty for a short nose
- The issue is that you need your nose lengthened so it does not look "flicked up"
- This can be accomplished with cartilage grafting
- In addition, we can bring the tip in a little bit to match the new bridge
- Finally, addressing the bulbous tip can be done with cartilage rearranging, instead of removing (which can cause long term breathing issues)
- When you are ready, see a rhinoplasty specialist who can answer all of your questions and address your concerns - this is not a run-of-the-mill nose, you should see an expert
