What Kind of Procedure Will We Better for my Nose?

    Cephalic trims with suturing techniques for tip refinement along with alar base reduction with possible dorsal augmentation may offer a good serious of maneuvers to improve the nose in the fashion you would like.  Additional pictures or an exam would be necessary to determine this with certainty.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials 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.

Your Rhinoplasty Recommendations

A side profile view would be helpful to determine if augmentation is needed for your nose.  Bulbous tip can br improved by several maneuvers in rhinoplasty, including soft tissue debulking, tip sutures and graft.   A combination technique using both implant for bridge augmentation and cartilage grafts for tip work is often needed to give the best results in more difficult ethnic noses.

Rhinoplasty for bulbous tip and alar reduction

 A rhinoplasty to reduce the bulbous tip would involve tip suturing techniques to narrow and refine the tip cartilages along with a cephalic trim of the lower lateral cartilages  as well. An alar platy would narrow the nostrils by removing a small wedge of skin( approximately 4 mm), and sewing nostrils closer together
