Thank you for your inquiry!

It seems that you are a good candidate for a corrective rhinoplasty dealing with the aspects of your nose that you like to address while complementing your facial features and providing you with a natural look. I am sorry that you have to deal with "harsh" comments about your nose.
However, without a physical examination it is not possible to provide you with specific details. I highly recommend that you schedule a consultation with a well-experienced surgeon.

It is important to mention that the finest cosmetic results in any particular case are based on a variety of factors, including: the unique anatomy of the patient, realistic expectations, a well-informed and detailed discussion with your plastic surgeon concerning the best options for you especially covering a deep understanding of the pros and cons of any given choice you will adopt.

Please keep in mind that following the advice from a surgeon online who offers to tell you what to do without a physical examination covering the nature and the status of the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of each operative solution would not be in your best interest. With that in mind, it is the safest and for your best interest to find a plastic surgeon with solid experience and certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery who is ideally a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons that you will trust and be comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Good luck!!!

Reduction of the tip and the alar base along with possible dorsal refinement will make a very positive change in your nose.

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.

I would recommend an in-person consult with a board certified rhinoplasty surgeon who specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty. Your prospective surgeon may use computer imaging software to morph a photo of you, which can give you an idea of how the final result of surgery may appear. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Bulbous Tip Rhinoplasty

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Hi,


You should seek out a surgeon that does ethnic rhinoplasty and knows how to deal with a fat bulbous tip. Your surgery would involve defatting the tip as seen in the video below with cartlage grafting.

Best,
Dr.S.
