Rhinoplasty for overly projecting nose
Large crooked nose, to fix or not?
2. There is a bump and you feel the nose is crooked. Yes both those complaints can be addressed with surgery.
3. The nose is too large: Most importantly, the nose must fit your face and respect your ethnicity. So a large nose made less large for someone European is not the same procedure as making a nose less large for someone of Middle Eastern background.
4. Best advice, see a board certified plastic surgeon who has special interest and expertise in noses. Ask to see pictures of different types of noses, different ethnicities so you can see what a change in your nose shape and size might look like.

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.
